Unattended Keys = Auto Burglary & Theft

The victim of an auto burglary reported that on Saturday, November 7th, he parked and locked his vehicle near First Avenue Middle School at about 4:45 PM. The victim went to the basketball courts and left his keys unattended near the court, while playing ball. At some point during the pick-up game, his keys were taken. The suspect(s) gained entry to the locked vehicle, took the victim's wallet, cash and golf clubs. The suspect(s) then made their way to the mall and used the victim's credit card to make fraudulent purchases.

Don't give thieves the opportunity. Don't become a victim. Keep the door key or alarm fob in your pocket. Do not leave your property unattended.
