“We are still seeing far too many incidents of larcenies from autos. For the year 2017, over 80% of the larcenies from automobiles were from UNSECURED vehicles and over 80 weapons were stolen from these vehicles. Most thefts from motor vehicles are preventable if you follow the tips below.
Practice T. L. C.
Take Out Valuables
If you can leave your valuables at home, do it. Otherwise, when you get to your destination, take your valuables with you. If you must leave them in your automobile, put them in your trunk before you get to your destination. This includes firearms! Please do not leave firearms in your vehicle unsecured!
Lock Your Vehicle
Always lock your vehicle even when parked in your own driveway!
Close Doors and Windows
An open door or window allows a thief a quick and quiet way to enter your automobile. Take the time to make sure you closed everything.
