News from the Captain

We have seen an influx of car thefts in Baltimore County in the last few months. More than half of these thefts are due to what we call “warm up thefts” or keys have been left in or near the vehicle. Please stay vigilant in protecting your property. The steps below may help you keep yourself from being a victim:

  • Keep your vehicle locked.
  • Do not leave it turned on attended.
  • Do not leave a spare key near your vehicle.
  • Never leave your windows open.
  • Park in well-lit, public areas when possible.
  • Consider installing an audible alarm system and a visible anti-theft device.
  • Consider installing a vehicle immobilizer system if possible.
  • Consider installing a GPS tracking system if possible.
  • Do not leave registration information in the vehicle.

In the event that your vehicle is stolen, we recommend you give the following information to the police:

  • The year, make, model and color of the car and the license.
  • Description of any unique feature about your vehicle such as accessories or bumper stickers. Keeping a picture of these features may be helpful.
  • The approximate time of the theft.
  • Possible descriptions of anyone you saw loitering around your car before it was stolen
  • Any names of witnesses you may have.
