A word of caution to parents who take their children into day care facilities and leave their valuables, such as purses or wallets inside the vehicle: TAKE IT WITH YOU.
In the past, auto burglars have targeted vehicles as parents take their
children into the building and leave their purses, wallets, GPS’s, electronics
and other items of value inside their vehicles, sometimes in plain view.
This morning we had at least four vehicles entered at three different locations
while parents were dropping their kids off at day care. The suspects smashed a
window to gain quick access inside each of the vehicles.
Please make sure to lock your car and take items such as purses or wallets with
you when you leave. Removing other valuables from plain sight or
locking them in the trunk is also another effective deterrent.
