Car larcenies can occur anywhere, primarily in places where there is a large concentration of vehicles. This would include parking garages, shopping facilities, churches, sporting/recreation events, and restaurants. They can also occur right in your own neighborhoods.
There are three simple steps you can take to help reduce your chances in becoming a victim:
Step 1: Take all your valuables out of your car, and secure them in the trunk or even hide them underneath your seats. Remember: Out of Sight, Out of Mind!
Step 2: Ensure all windows are rolled up properly and all doors are closed tightly. Do not give thieves a chance to get into your car!
Step 3: Lock your car. Make sure all your doors are closed and locked, by physically and visibly checking them. Check before you leave!
