 Purses/wallets, personal electronics, vehicle valet keys, sunglasses, credit cards, cash, checkbooks and cell phones should NEVER be left inside your vehicle, especially in plain view. 


If you must leave such items in your vehicle we recommend you conceal and secure them properly, out of sight, in the trunk or rear cargo area. However we urge you not to leave them in the vehicle. 


Additionally, everyone should be aware that these vehicle burglaries often lead to other crimes such as fraud and identity theft.  We suggest you limit the amount of personal information you keep in your vehicle on a daily basis.    

"While we know nothing is 100% full proof, we feel that by taking these precautions you can substantially reduce the chance of being a victim of these types of crimes.   We are actively working with surrounding towns on these and other vehicle burglar investigations in the hopes of bringing the person(s) responsible to justice.  

Criminals thrive on opportunity, DO NOT give them one," said Chief William Keane, Warren Township Police Department
