Tulsa police are searching for a thief they said stole two different cars from two different QuikTrips overnight on Tuesday.

Officers said the thief stole the first car from a QuikTrip near 11th and Highway 169 just after 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Police told FOX23 an Hispanic man with tattoos on his face walked inside the store and demanded the clerk hand over his keys.

Police said the car thief was very bold in demanding what he wanted, even without showing any kind of weapon.

An hour later, police found the clerk's silver, Mitsubishi Gallant at a different QuikTrip, at 96th and Riverside.

The clerk told FOX23 he's relieved to have his car back, but money he had inside his car is now gone.

Then, officers said the same thief stole a customer's car from the QuikTrip parking lot after he noticed the keys were in the ignition.

Officers said this is a good reminder not to leave your keys inside your vehicle. They also said don't ever leave your car running, even if you are going inside a store for just a few minutes.

Police are still looking for the second car the thief stole, a beige Kia Sorrento. Police told FOX23 they are looking at surveillance footage from the store to see if there are any clues

Officers said Tuesday is a good reminder to leave your keys inside your vehicle. I guess they like to look for stolen cars? Insurance may not pay out if the keys were left in it as suggested.

Isn't that first Quick-Trip right next to the police station?
