Crime Prevention Tip

This may have been an attempted burglary of a motor vehicle, as the owner of the van had left her purse and cellular telephone in plain view inside the vehicle. The person who committed this crime may have been scared off by a person who was dropping off their child at the day care center. Do not give a thief a reason to even break your window out. Never leave anything inside your vehicle even if you will only be parked for a few minutes. Most thefts can occur in just seconds.
