A Manassas woman jumped in the driver's seat of a Honda parked at a 7-Eleven and decided to go for a joyride to another 7-Eleven, Manassas Police said. 

Natasha Cook, 30, of Stone Hill Lane in Manassas was arrested and charged with grand larceny and driving on a revoked license, police said. 

Police said the woman had been waiting with others inside the car as the driver went inside the 7-Eleven location at 8708 Liberia Ave. at 3:25 a.m. on Jan 18. 

At some point the woman hopped behind the wheel of the 1999 Honda Accord and drove off, despite the driver's attempts to stop her, Manassas Police said.  

Officers recovered the car less than a mile away at another 7-Eleven at 9056 Liberia Ave. 

Cook was held on a $10,000 secured bond and a $4,000 secured bond. She is expected to appear in court on the charges on March 4.

Yet people will still let their cars sit and idle in front of stores like this. Dumb to do this people.

She was in the car as a guest. She had a revoked license, guess watching someone else drive all the time just hit her limit. She isn't allowed to operate a motor vehicle again in va, ever. So she saw an opportunity for a drive... Funny.
