Larceny from Auto Tips

Our CMPD Area Commander supplied this report of Larcenies from Auto from early January through early February. This is a common crime, but there are easy methods of prevention. CMPD recommends that you:
  • Always lock and secure your vehicle.
  • Never leave any valuable items inside your vehicle - laptops, telephones, iPods, purses, briefcase, backpack, cash and even loose change.
  • Store packages in the trunk of your vehicle while shopping.
  • Park in a well lit area that is visible from a window.
  • Park vehicle in the driveway rather than the street.
  • Report all suspicious activity to the police (911).
  • Consider a car alarm for added protection.
