Theft's from vehicles
Release Date: February 27, 2013

Recently there has been an increase in thefts from vehicles throughout the town and more prevalent in the Edgemont section. The large majority of the vehicles that were entered were unlocked. To help combat this type of crime please take notice of the following crime prevention tips.

· LOCK YOUR DOORS and roll up the windows: Criminals love to go window shopping. They walk down neighborhood streets or go through shopping center parking lots looking through the windows of parked cars to see what people have left behind.

· Make sure you leave nothing of value in plain view in your car. Take valuables away with you, or put them in the trunk. If you own a sport utility vehicle, cover your valuables. Don't give thieves that kind of opportunity.

  • Remove portable electronic devices such as smart phones and portable GPS navigation systems, including suction cup or bean bag type mounts. (even the visible appearance of a suction cup ring on the glass windshield can be an enticement to a thief to break in and look for the GPS system.)

  • Don't leave personal identification documents such as your license, registration to vehicle or credit cards in your vehicle.

· Activate any theft deterrent device you may have.

· Park in a well lit area or under a motion detector light if available

· If you have a garage, use it.

  • Call the police to report a crime or any suspicious activity.
