Daily Watch Notes 10112017 – Weekly Auto Thefts for the City – Vehicle Warm Up Reminder

Good Afternoon All,

Below are the property crimes as they were reported in the past 24 hours. Also, we would like give some good news on the fact that we are still seeing a downward trend on the auto thefts that are occurring throughout the city on a weekly basis. There has been a significant decrease of auto thefts this past week. Chevy’s are coming down on the list, but we still are seeing Fords at the top and Hondas are starting to increase again. If you have one of these makes, ensure that you have extra security on it.

Food for Thought!

As we move into the change of the weather, especially the colder mornings and you feel the need to warm up your car, go back inside for a minute or two, then come back out, please think twice about doing that. Cars nowadays don’t need to be warmed. That was with older vehicles, not the ones we drive now. They are only warmed up for the convenience of the driver and not having to sit in a cold car while going to work. Don’t leave your car running with the door locked and keys in the ignition. A window can easily be broken and the car be taken within a matter of seconds. Criminals look for those cars that are “puffing” from the exhaust of the car. Don’t become a victim. Bundle up and bring your coffee with you outside and sit in your car if you want to warm it prior to leaving.

Keep up the good work with calling these crimes in. Citizens help us everyday by giving us vital information we need to catch these criminals.
