What's In Plain Sight is a Thief's Delight

Most crimes are committed because of opportunity.  Take breaking into vehicles as an example.  From outside the vehicle, you can normally see items on the inside in plain view.  Let's say you leave your cell phone on the front seat. There are several different locations that will purchase your cell phone for $50.00 to $100.00. Making it more convincing  for a thief to smash a window, take the phone, and make some easy money. 

Put a stop to crimes of opportunity.  Reduce your odds of becoming a victim. Don't leave anything in plain view within your vehicle. If a thief looks into your vehicle and sees nothing, he or she will usually move on quickly to the next opportunity. This may seem like common sense, however the next time you are walking into a store glance into some vehicles . You will be surprised by the number and types of valuables that are left in plain view.

Police Tips: Holiday Package Theft

The abundance of deliveries this time of the year can bring out the holiday Grinch. 

To help avoid the theft of your holiday packages from your front porch, have your packages delivered to a location where they can be received in person, such as a neighbor’s or relative’s home. If your employer allows it, consider having your package delivered to work.

Some retailers provide the option of choosing a specific delivery time.  Take advantage of delivery alerts so you can be notified when a package arrives at your home. If you are not available to accept delivery, ask a trusted neighbor to take your package inside for safekeeping.

Also, please be sure to not leave packages and gifts in vehicles.  Criminals are tuned into gifts left in vehicles during the holiday season and will target this theft opportunity.

If you are a victim of theft, please notify the Bexley Police Department and file a theft report as soon as possible at (614) 559-4444.
