Police continue to encourage home owners and vehicle owners to be vigilant in securing autos when not in use. Police continue to respond to calls for service involving thefts from autos overnight.
They say that following a couple of valuable tips may prevent these crimes:
– never leave vehicles unlocked while unattended;
– never leave keys in the vehicle;
– park in well-lit areas;
– never leave valuable objects in plain view (remove them or secure them in the trunk); and
– always roll up windows.
Police also remind vehicle owners to “lock it or lose it.”
