Auto Theft Prevention Tips from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department
Vehicles left unattended with keys left in the ignition are easily targeted by car thieves. This dangerous practice allows for an easy theft or joyride by an experienced driver.
This commonly occurs around the neighborhood store, coffee shop, or while your car is parked on the street. Remain alert. Don’t create an opportunity. Don’t become a victim!
When leaving your vehicle always turn off the ignition and remove the keys. Also be sure you close your windows and lock your doors.
You might only be a “minute”, but a “minute” is all a thief needs.
