The Glassboro police say that delivery drivers are being targeted by carjackers. One driver left his car running to drop off an order, then turned back when he realized he'd forgotten his wallet, and when he got back, his car was gone.

Just a couple says earlier, the same thing happened when they went into a campus residence after they'd left their car unlocked and running. Officials suspect there are two people working together.

The police have issued a simple warning to delivery drivers: don't leave your car running while picking up or dropping off an order. Even if you'll only be gone for a couple of minutes - that's all it takes for someone to quietly make off with your car.
