Read how an auto burglary hit our own Captain Lazar!
As long as we have auto burglaries in the Central District, I will continue to mention this type of crime. Every day, I read incident reports where victims have items stolen from their vehicle. In the last week, there have been a few cases where large amounts of cash were left in bags visible in vehicles. Please do not leave anything in your vehicle. Your vehicle should look completely empty to the criminal who will be looking inside.
This was especially close to home this morning as I left my house here in the City, preparing to come to Central Station, and noticed the family van had been ransacked overnight. I am taking full responsibility for leaving it unlocked last night as I assisted my youngest child out of the van at about 9:00 p.m. Luckily, in an effort to live by what I ask of others, my sunglasses (hidden away) and a couple of old cell phone chargers were taken. Other than the sunglasses, nothing of value was taken. The thieves did not take my garage remote for which I am fortunate or my daughter’s shoes.
