There’s been an increase in vehicle burglaries and thefts from unlocked vehicles. There is no way of to completely stop someone from breaking into your car, but there is a few ways to keep you from being a victim and minimize your loss. If you have any valuables, such as an iPhone, purse or video camera, store it under the seat or in the glove compartment. Most of the time, thieves are just looking for a quick buck and if they see something they like, they’ll smash and grab. You’ll also want to put anything that looks like it could contain something valuable, such as a box or briefcase, in the trunk to prevent car break-ins. Many people don’t lock their car when they’re “just running into the store” or “they’ll only be a minute.” A minute is all the time it takes to break into someone’s car. Lock your doors to prevent car break-ins. Don’t make the thief’s job any easier by handing him an open door. Also, make sure to keep your windows rolled up.
