Vehicle burglaries are rapidly becoming one of the most common, yet most preventable crimes in northern Nevada.  Vehicle thieves are opportunists. They “shop” in neighborhoods, shopping malls, recreation areas/parks, and more.  Some pull on door handles, looking for an unlocked door while others break in after they “window shop,” looking for electronics, money or valuables that are left in plain view.

Remember, you have ConTRoL! By following these four steps you can significantly reduce your risk of becoming a victim of vehicle theft.
