Prevent vehicle burglaries

September 23, 2016

Vehicle burglaries have increased considerably in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Cerritos Sheriff's deputies have reported the main cause of vehicle burglaries is the placement of valuables within the passenger compartment. Laptop computers, cellular phones, purses, briefcases and cameras are some of the most frequently stolen items.

The best security against vehicle burglars is to not leave items in your car. If you do have to keep items in your car, then secure or conceal them.
