Here is the message again:
Over the past several weeks we have noticed several theft from auto sprees in several communities in the Western District.
A theft from auto spree is where several vehicles are broken into in a community over a short period of time (usually during the overnight hours). Generally, these thieves will roam a community, do their deeds, and then move on to the next community or move to another area all together.
While theives will roam a neighborhood with the intent to steal from vehicles, this is still a crime of opportunity as the thieves target vehicles that are left unlocked; and vehicles where valuable property (i.e. GPS, purses, lap tops, etc.) is left in plain view.
Please don’t be a victim of theft from your vehicle….
It CAN happen to YOU !!!!!!
LOCK YOUR DOORS
REMOVE VALUABLE PROPERTY
IF POSSIBLE PARK IN WELL LIT AREAS
REPORT SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR
