There will be a VIN etching at AAA New Mexico parking lot, 10501 Montgomery Blvd NE on Saturday, November 7th from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. This service is free and a great way to prevent auto theft. Bring your vehicle registration and the APD Auto Theft team will etch the vehicle ID number (VIN) into the glass parts of your vehicle while you wait. This only takes moments and prevents a vehicle from being stolen to be dismantled in a ‘chop shop’ and sold for parts and it also helps police quickly identify your vehicle if it is stolen and recovered.
