With the holiday shopping season in full swing, residents are reminded to not leave valuables in their vehicles, especially in plain sight, and always lock the doors.
Auto burglary cases can be very difficult to solve as there is usually very little physical evidence left behind. To reduce the risk of vehicle burglaries during the holiday season, the Irving Police Department is raising awareness of ways to deter criminal activity.
Thieves know that valuables are often hidden in the console and under seats. The best way to avoid being a victim is to remove all valuables when exiting the vehicle.
