The Cockeysville Precinct investigated a number of thefts from automobiles on the street and in driveways in the Mays Chapel area and west of I-83 over the winter break. Suspects have been targeting unlocked cars because of the ease and swiftness it allows for them to commit their crimes.

We cannot emphasize enough how important the simple preventative measure of locking your car doors is, regardless of whether your vehicle is parked on the street, in your driveway, or even inside your garage.

As equally important is the simple task of keeping your valuables out of sight when kept in your vehicle. Fifty cents in your cup holder may not be much to you, but the sight of that to an opportunistic criminal is reason enough to break into your vehicle.

Follow these few simple steps to protect your belongings and your vehicles:

  • Always keep your vehicle locked
  • Never leave your valuables in plain sight in your vehicle
  • Leave outdoor lights on overnight or install motion sensor activated lights
  • Consider installing exterior security cameras

For more information on how to secure your home and possessions, or to request a free home security survey during which an officer will respond to your home and make suggestions on ways you can make your home more secure, call the Cockeysville Precinct Community Outreach Team at 410-887-1863. It takes mere seconds for criminals to commit these crimes when vehicles are left unlocked so be vigilant and report to police any unusual activity or people in your community by calling the non-emergency police line at 410-887-2222.

REMEMBER, YOU ARE THE EYES AND EARS OF YOUR COMMUNITY!
