One crime you can really help us prevent is auto-burglary. Almost all auto-burglaries have one thing in common: something to steal. That is, something valuable left in the car, often in plain sight of a passing burglar. Many auto-burglaries are “crimes of opportunity”. These crimes can often be avoided if simple preventative steps are taken. Don’t leave valuables in your car. Thieves are targeting purses, laptops, GPS units and MP3 players, which are easily sold. Additionally, computers, purses and wallets are highly desired targets that are stolen, to commit identity theft. Don’t hesitate to call the Sheriff Station if you see suspicious activity. We count on good people to be our “eyes and ears.”
