Residents can also take some basic steps that will help prevent further crimes from occurring.
- If possible, vehicles should be kept in a garage or off the street in a driveway.
- Vehicles parked in a well-lit area with good visibility are less likely to become targets for crimes.
- Motion lighting, or even leaving on exterior lights overnight, can help deter crimes around your property and costs next to nothing.
- Pay attention to people out and about in your neighborhood, especially at night, and report any activity you think may be related to these crimes.
