What did offenders steal from parked vehicles in one day?  A wallet, multiple credit cards, a checkbook (victim was contacted by bank when subject was trying to pass a $200 forged check from victim’s account), stereo, golf clubs, 2 purses, 2 e-tablets, truck tailgate and bed cover, cash, CDs, sunglasses, sports ball bag, and a laptop.

Please help your friends and family by spreading the word to remove all items of value (including personal papers, keys, garage door openers) from vehicles when parking and leaving a vehicle unattended.  Auto burglary is a crime of opportunity.  If you can remove the opportunity, you can reduce your odds of being a victim.
