The State Police in Troop K want to remind the public to lock their cars due to a continued trend of vehicle break-ins and thefts.
- Please always lock your vehicle, even in your own driveway.
- Close all windows including sunroofs.
- Park in well-lit areas.
- Never leave your vehicle unattended while it is running.
- Never leave keys, valuables, or personal identification in a vehicle.
Currently, most of the vehicles that unlawfully leave a traffic stop involving State Police are stolen from the local area. Vehicles are being stolen largely in part because victims have kept their vehicle unlocked, with the keys in it.
