    People should not only lock their vehicles at all times, but hide purses/wallets, electronics and other items of potential value to a thief out of sight. A car alarm also never hurts.

    I have no fear of my car being tossed, I’m from L.A. and that’s happened to me before….what I have a fear of is walking up to my car (in total darkness) and interrupting a criminal. It’s 3 weeks since Christmas…the stuff being left in cars is probably new and good to pawn for drug money. Don’t assume these are harmless, stupid, kids. Get smart…simple to install motion detector lights are less than $20, all over town. Leaving a porch light on all night is probably a good idea if you’re going to be going out to your car at night or going to be coming home. A California behavior to learn: When coming home after dark, throw your high-beams on as you enter your driveway. Even if you don’t see something, if you just feel uneasy, stay in your car. There’s a difference between anxiety and fear, use them and stay safe. I live about 6 blocks from where these burglaries happened. We ignore our dogs alerts at night…that’s gonna change. When they catch these losers, I hope it’s unpleasant and expensive for them!

      This is also a concealed carry permit allowable state. Take advantage of it.
