Another vehicle burglary occurred near the 22700 block of Peach Court. Suspect(s) unknown entered the victims locked vehicle and stole numerous personal items from inside the vehicle. No signs of forced entry into the vehicle were seen.

During this past week we had had four incidents of shoplifting occur at local businesses in the area. Three out of the four incidents resulted in arrests from the stores. Each case is currently being investigated and handled by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Detective bureau.

As we are amid the holiday season please remember these tips on how to prevent becoming a victim.

Car thefts seem to occur with greater frequency where large groups of cars are parked for extended periods of time in places such as shopping centers, colleges, sporting events, movie complexes, and large apartment complexes. Car thefts occur at random on different days of the week and times of the day, depending on the locations.

Below are some tips you can use to avoid being the victim of a car thief:

* Never leave your car running unattended, even to dash into a business, store, etc.;

* Never leave any keys in the car or ignition, inside a locked garage, or in hide-a-key boxes;

* Always roll up your windows and lock the car, even if it is parked in front of your home;

* Never leave valuables in plain view, even if your car is locked. Put them in the trunk out of sight;

* Always park in high-traffic, well-lighted areas, when possible;

* Install a mechanical device that locks the steering wheel, column, or brakes. These devices will deter some criminals;

* Investigate the purchase of a vehicle theft tracking/security system, especially if you own one of the frequently stolen model vehicles;

* Never leave personal identification documents, vehicle ownership title, or credit cards in your vehicle;

* Copy your license plate and vehicle information (VIN) numbers on a card and keep them with you. If your vehicle is stolen, the police will need this information to take a report; and,

* If your vehicle is stolen, report it to the police immediately.

Remember, there is no guarantee that your car will not be stolen, but taking precautionary measures can minimize your chances of becoming the victim of auto theft.
