Officials report the owner parked the car in the short-term parking lot at the airport on June 1 and when they came back on June 9, the car was gone.

The owner of the car called police at 6:42 p.m. Sunday to report the theft.

An investigation revealed the suspect flew into the airport on June 3 and went to the parking garage, checking car doors.

"When the suspect came across the Lamborghini, he found the car unlocked with the keys inside, allowing him to steal the car," Salt Lake police stated.

As police search for the car, they're also reminding Utahns to always lock car doors, remove valuables, keep windows rolled up and never leave keys inside.
