Burglars who broke into a house in New Mills stole the keys to a car parked outside and drove off in the vehicle.
The offenders smashed a window at a house in The Crescent between 5.30pm and 9.20pm on Saturday.
They searched inside the property and took the keys to a 62-plate Audi A4, which had been parked on the driveway.
The burglars then took the white vehicle.
Police investigating the offence want to hear from witnesses or anyone who saw the vehicle being driven in the area around the time of the offence.
Anyone with information should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting crime reference 50637/14.
