Former North Dakota Governor Ed Schafer learned a lesson about his car keys after his vehicle was stolen while he was hosting a radio show in Fargo.
Schafer was invited to host radio station KFGO's “News and Views” program on Friday morning. During the show, police called the station to ask if he owned a 2020 GMC Yukon vehicle, according to the station.
It turns out that the SUV had been stolen from the station parking lot. The robber apparently led her to a probation office and turned himself in to authorities, Schafer said.
The vehicle has a push button start system and it is necessary to have the key inside to start it. But Schafer had left a spare key inside, allowing the thief to boot it up and drive away.
The former governor and former US Secretary of Agriculture said he was asked to be more careful.
“My wife has been telling me for 31 years, 'Why don't you lock the car?'” Schafer said.
