PEOPLE are not heeding the warnings about leaving valuables in their cars and not securing their vehicles.
Too many opportunistic thefts have occurred from unlocked cars parked in carports and driveways or on the roads, where people think their car is safe. If you leave valuables in the car, it is an advertisement for opportunistic theft. Cars are not a good place to leave phones, laptops, purses, handbags or wallets. Lock and remove valuables in shopping centres too.
