Topeka (WIBW) - Topeka Police have announced their "Hot Wheels" featured stolen vehicle for the week.

It is a beige, 2002 Toyota Tundra 4 Door with a dent in the front passenger side bumper. It was reported taken on August 28th from the 2500 Block SE Kentucky.

The last four-digits of the VIN are 1981. At the time it was stolen, it possibly had the license tag 7HG S83 (TX).

Anyone with information on the theft of this vehicle or any others is asked to call detectives at 785-368-9400.

Things you can do to help prevent auto theft:
·Never leave your motor running when unattended. This is one of the easiest ways to lose your vehicle, i.e. warm-up thefts on cold mornings, a quick trip into the store, etc.
·Don't loan your car to a stranger or casual acquaintance. Good intentions can result in the theft of your vehicle.
·If you have a garage, use it, and remove the key! If you don't have a garage, park in a driveway instead of the street if possible.
·Steering wheel or steering-column collar locks make visible deterrents, as well as mechanical challenges.
·Never leave a spare key in the vehicle and don’t leave the title in the car.
·Keep valuables out of sight, i.e. cellular phones, pagers, backpacks, purses, CDs, valuable clothing, etc. Valuables in plain view are an open invitation for thieves.
