As the weather gets warmer, we just want to remind residents and visitors to remove all valuables from your vehicles. This time of year we do see an increase in people watching vehicles and then looking into them to see whatís there after the owners leave.
The following are a few key points:
Even a gym bag can attract attention because they donít know whatís inside.
GPS units have recently seen a rise in theft; record your make, model and serial number and keep it in a safe place.
Do not remove valuables and place them in the trunk once you arrive at your destination; do this beforehand.
If your stereo is removable, take it with you.
Even items like designer sunglasses, change visible from an open ashtray, or any other small valuable items could draw attention.
Call 911 on suspicious activity. If you see someone loitering near vehicles, they could be waiting and watching for their next victim.
