Here are a few tips to deter thieves:

  1. Always lock your car doors
  2. Do not leave your car running when you go into stores
  3. Do not get out of your car and leave it running to warm it up
  4. Do not leave your keys in the car
  5. Do not leave valuables such as purses and electronics in plain sight
