Eden Prairie Police Department is looking for a vehicle that was stolen with a dog inside from a gas station Monday night. 

The 2002 Toyota Camry, which was left running with the keys in the ignition, was stolen around 7 p.m. from a Holiday gas station located at 8051 Flying Cloud Drive in Eden Prairie. The car owner's dog, a Weimaraner named Bevis, was inside the vehicle when it was stolen. 

The car is identified as a tan Toyota Camry with Minnesota license plates 593-UND. 

The dog answers to Bevis and was wearing a blue and red bandana. 

Anyone who sees the vehicle or dog is asked to call 911.

This continues a trend of dogs being taken while inside stolen vehicles in the Twin Cities. 

A Labradoodle was taken along with an SUV that was left running outside a Walgreens in Woodbury, with the dog later found tied to a vehicle in St. Paul. 

In Bloomington, a dog owner got their pet back after it was stolen with a vehicle while left idling outside a hotel. 

And a therapy dog was inside a car that was stolen outside the Poke House & Tea Bar in St. Paul, though the dog has since been reunited with its owner.
