Their cars were taken while warming up on driveways, or idling at the gas station - but police say the victims were also lawbreakers. Increasingly, investigators say, people are leaving their car engines running or leaving their keys in the ignition, violations of state motor vehicle codes. Although the victims of car theft are rarely charged with such infractions, they could find themselves without insurance coverage for the resulting loss, police say. In Anne Arundel County, where more than 1,170 vehicles were reported stolen last year, police began this month to keep track of the number of car thefts in which keys were left in the ignition.
