1. Lock your car doors and windows upon exiting your vehicle – EVEN IN YOUR DRIVEWAY


2. Do not leave valuables in your car – Especially items like Electronics, Credit Cards, Cash or Checkbooks.


3. Do not leave your car keys in your ignition.


4. Close your garage door at night.


5. Secure valuables, tools and equipment usually kept in your work-truck bed at night.


6. Leave a porch light on at night.
