Prevent theft of SUV third-row seats

January 27, 2017

If you own a sports utility vehicle (SUV), the Cerritos Sheriff's Station/Community Safety Center recommends that you use some type of cable lock to secure your vehicle's third-row seats to help prevent them from being stolen. Cable locks can be purchased at hardware stores and through many online retailers, and are an inexpensive way to protect your property.

The theft of third-row seats from SUVs has increased significantly in Los Angeles and Orange counties. There were 392 vehicles burglarized in 2016, and third-row seats from SUVs were among some of the frequently stolen items.

For more vehicle burglary prevention tips, call the Community Safety Division at (562) 916-1266 or visit the Safer Cerritos website at
