Theft from Vehilce is on the rise

Here's an important message from our Investigations Division -
With the temperatures starting to get down below freezing, many of us are going out to our vehicles in the morning to find layers of ice over our windshields and windows.  Detectives are asking that you resist the urge to start up your vehicle and leave it to warm up while you are getting ready for work, school, or errands that you may need to run during the day.   There have been a number of cases recently where vehicle owners did this, and thieves took advantage and stole their cars. 

Also, detectives are hoping everyone will remember not to leave valuables, shopping bags and  nicely wrapped Christmas presents in their vehicles where thieves will have an easy time breaking in and stealing them.
