Lock up your valu­ables and stop a thief

The Dundalk Eagle - - POLICE BEAT -

There is no spe­cial time of year for crim­i­nals to com­mit a bur­glary. How­ever, spring and sum­mer make it eas­ier to steal valu­ables right from un­der us.

Stop crim­i­nals be­fore they strike. Do these easy steps and you’ll keep what be­longs to you.

Lock your ve­hi­cles when­ever you park, whether in your drive­way or on the street. Thieves go straight to the glove box and other stor­age ar­eas look­ing for valu­ables – even loose change in plain view.

Don’t leave extra keys in the ve­hi­cle. Some thieves have used spare keys to steal the ve­hi­cle or oth­ers at the same ad­dress.

The spare keys can also be used to make entry your home. This puts you and your fam­ily at risk if they get into your home.

Have on­line and other de­liv­ery ser­vices leave your pack­ages at a des­ig­nated lo­ca­tion. You can spec­ify your work ad­dress or a neigh­bor’s ad­dress. Thieves drive through neigh­bor­hoods look­ing for goods left on porches or doorsteps.
