Safety Tips:

Thefts from vehicles can happen anytime, day or night. Park in well-lit, heavily traveled areas.

Close and lock all windows and doors when you exit.

Never leave valuables in plain sight. (Phones, GPS units, coins, charging cords, or other small items can be enough to invite the thief.)
