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.
