DO NOT LEAVE ITEMS VISIBLE IN YOUR VEHICLE! Take all personal belongings with you when you exit your vehicle or secure items in locked trunks. Do not leave items underneath vehicle seats or cover them with clothing apparel or blankets. Thieves know this technique. Remember to roll up all windows and lock doors before walking away from your vehicle. Keep theft down.
Take careful steps to not become a victim. Be mindful of your surroundings. Do not leave personal items unattended in public areas, such as restaurants, shopping carts or counter tops of businesses.
If you see any suspicious activity, please call the Sheriff’s Station immediately at 661-255-1121.
