Prevent vehicle burglaries

September 25, 2017

Vehicle burglaries have increased considerably in Los Angeles and Orange counties. According to Cerritos Sheriff's Station deputies, items left in plain view – including laptops, cell phones, garage door openers, purses, briefcases, wallets and gym bags – are some of the most frequently stolen items.

The best security against vehicle burglars is to avoid storing items in the car. If you do, secure or conceal the items. Always lock car doors and report the license plates or descriptions of suspicious vehicles or persons immediately to the Sheriff's station.
