The bad guys are the same as us: they don’t like the cold and they don’t want to walk, so they find an easy car to steal. It could even be worse if you left your children in a running, unlocked vehicle and it gets stolen. It has happened.
Please do not leave your car running unattended with the keys in it. Also, a vehicle is not a babysitter. Never leave kids along in a vehicle.
There have also been several recent cases where offenders break into vehicles and use the garage remote control to gain access into the garage. The offenders enter the garage and steal items of value.
To help prevent this, remove all valuables from your vehicle including the garage door remote, and any documents that have your address on them.
I wish everyone a safe and happy new year.
