 Prevent Vehicle Burglary and Vehicle Theft:

 *Most cars are stolen by suspects that look for the easy  opportunity. Don't leave your windows down, don't leave your  vehicle unlocked, and don't leave the vehicle running while  unattended.

 *An unlocked car is an open invitation to a suspect. Lock up  when you leave your vehicle and don't leave any keys inside  (even if you are making a quick stop at the store, restaurant or  gas station).

 *Close windows all the way - professional thieves will use special  tools to unlock vehicles through open wing windows or windows  that are slightly open.

 *When you park the vehicle, remove cellular phones, GPS, and  other valuable belongings. Don't leave high dollar items like  computers, video games, and cameras in plain sight. Lock all  valuables in your trunk or take them with you.

 *If you cannot take your mobile device with you, make sure to  lock it in the trunk and out of view. Turn your device off  completely. Thieves can use your mobile device’s Wi-Fi and  carrier signals to determine if you indeed have something  hidden in your car worth stealing.

 *Do not leave your pink slip or vehicle loan information inside  the vehicle. Suspects can easily use these items to commit fraud  and make it appear that they own the vehicle.
