Police say the cars were being loaded into a car carrier headed back to New Jersey, when a hotel valet brought the BMW out of the garage and handed it to the transporter. Two car thieves jumped in and took off after the handler stepped away.

The car is equipped with BMW Assist, which locates stolen cars.
