BOONVILLE — The Boonville Police Department has had several reports of unlocked vehicles having items stolen from them.
These reports stem from the area that surrounds Krohn Street.
With reports throughout the year, the BPD urges people to leave their vehicles locked at all time.
“We would ask anyone who sees anything suspicious to please call 911 or 882-2727,” Boonville Police Chief Bobby Welliver stated.
Here are a few safety tips to keep you and your vehicle from being victimized.
• Don't merely conceal valuables such as laptops, phones, purses and GPS units. Instead, place them in the trunk of your car, where they're completely invisible from the outside. If a burglar walks by a car, they’re not going to break into it if they don’t see any valuables.
• If you drive an SUV or another vehicle without a trunk, consider installing an alarm that uses visible and audible alerts to draw attention to a theft in progress and scare off thieves.
• Avoid dark, out-of-the-way streets if you can park in a well-lit lot that's buzzing with activity. In an attended lot, park your car near the attendant. At home, put your car in the garage if possible; if you can't do that, park in the driveway rather than on the street.
• Be extra cautious in areas that are theft magnets, such as parking lots for hike-and-bike trails and fitness centers. Hanna says thieves count on exercisers to leave behind cumbersome objects like wallets and cell phones.
• Encourage your neighborhood to participate in a crime-watch program, which makes people look out for each other. When you see something that doesn’t look right, pick up the phone and call the authorities.
• Be aware that thieves are constantly learning new tricks. One current trend is stealing gasoline from tanks of unattended vehicles. Another is stealing documents with driver’s names, addresses, and other identifying information that can then be used for fraudulent purposes.
• While it sounds elementary, don't forget to lock your car and take your keys. Many thieves are able to steal items in a car — or a car itself because it was unlocked or the keys were in the ignition.
• Peel off those bumper stickers. Except one. There is one sticker you do want: a conspicuously placed alarm sticker.
