Keep Your Car Safe This Winter

As it gets colder, you may want to start your car and warm it up before your next drive. 

However, the Panhandle Auto Burglary and Theft Unit would like to advise otherwise, to decrease the risk of your car being stolen. 

A thief only needs a few seconds to run off with a vehicle that is left unattended and running, and a few seconds more to look inside at any valuables. 

Of the 36 vehicles stolen this year, 31 of them had the keys in the car and were stolen across the city, not in just an area or 2.

So remember to lock your vehicle doors, hide any valuables from view, and avoid leaving it an easy target.
