There are several things you can do to reduce your chance of becoming a victim. The most common mistake victims make is not locking their car doors. This simple step would prevent most burglary crimes that are reported to our station. Another helpful tip is to remove any valuable items from your vehicle. It is common for thieves to look inside your vehicle and see if there is anything of value left in plain view. By removing these items, your vehicle becomes less attractive to thieves.
