Auto Burglaries While Parents Drop Off Children at Day Care Facilities

A word of caution relating to parents who take their children into Day Care Facilities and leave their cars unlocked or even running, don’t do it!

In the past auto burglars have targeted cars, vans and trucks left unlocked when parents take their children into the building and leave their purses, wallets, GPS’s, electronics and other items of value in their unlocked vehicles.

On November 10, 2010 between 5:50 and 6:00 pm someone entered an unlocked minivan while it was at a Day Care center.

These crimes have occurred in the past years not only in Overland Park but also in other metro area cities. Reduce the opportunity for crime to occur by locking your car and making sure you have your keys with you.
