Lock Your Cars, Folks

Southampton Town police are trying to get the word out — stop leaving your vehicles unlocked with valuables inside. Among the tips the department offers is to lock your vehicle when parked in a public place or at home. “Never leave your car running unattended,” the department said. Do not leave valuables in plain sight on the seat or the floor. Take wallets, purses, and electronics out of the car when you leave, the department warned. 

Last, do not leave your keys in the console, in the ignition, or on the seat. In other words, don’t make it easy for a thief.
