A friendly re­minder to take that lit­tle bit of ex­tra time to make sure you re­move all valuables be­fore leaving your car. Some en­cour­ag­ing news is that po­lice re­cently charged some peo­ple with tres­pass­ing and are con­tin­u­ing in­quiries into var­i­ous steal­ing of­fences they may have been in­volved in.
