  1. The PD did a great job on this one. However, their advice on locking doors isn’t always right. If they c s/thing valuable they can break the window & get in. Better advice: leave the doors unlocked but take out ur valuables.

  2. #2 , sorry to say you are wrong. If they see the doors are locked and see valuable items they will 99% of the time move to the next unlocked vehicle. They tend to look for easier targets and to not alert anyone of their prescence. Please lock your doors and still take everything out of the vehicle that may be of value. Also at no tine ever leave your keys in the car.

  3. Police said “MOST of the vehicles were UNLOCKED” happens to be that most were unlocked, but they broke into the vehicles that were LOCKED TOO!!
