A Nordstrand Avenue resident's stolen Jeep Patriot was found a short later Monday engulfed in flames in Bridgeport.
The woman called police around 4 a.m. Monday to report the stolen 2009 SUV. She said the vehicle's engine was running, the keys were in it and the doors unlocked in order to warm it up.
When she went back outside, the Jeep was gone.
Bridgeport police recovered the vehicle, on fire, in the dead end of Alsace Street.
