Don't make it easy on auto burglars! In this case, the burglar did not need to risk someone hearing a window breaking out of the car or spend the extra time to break into the car — all they needed to do was open the door.

Occurred on 4-12-05 between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Burglary of Motor Vehicle: The right front window was broken out of a 1999 Honda 4-door while it was parked in the northwest side of the Parking Lot. A black Aiwa AM/FM/CD stereo with a detachable faceplate was stolen from the dashboard of the vehicle. Repair cost: $150.00. Loss value: $200.00.

Crime Prevention Tip

If your car's stereo has a detachable faceplate, then take advantage of it. By taking the stereo's faceplate with you, you will keep an auto burglar from seeing the type of stereo system your car has. It will also force the thief to find and purchase or steal a faceplate that will work on your stereo if they want to get good money for the stolen stereo.

Peter T. Flawn Academic Center, #2 West Mall

Occurred on 4-2-05 between 4:00 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.

Theft: A silver Samsung cellular telephone was stolen from a 1st floor computer lab workstation. The owner left the cellphone at the workstation several times during the time frame of the theft. Loss value: $99.00.

Crime Prevention Tip

Do not think about how short of a time frame you will be away from your unsecured property — think about how quickly someone can walk by your unsecured property, pick it up and walk away. It only takes a second or two — do you really think you will be back before a thief can steal your property?
