Look Out for Valuables and Gifts in Your Car

While you're out shopping this final weekend before Christmas, or maybe just parked while you're at dinner, remember to keep your purchases safe in your car.
If you can, put everything in the trunk and lock the car so thieves can't get in and pop the trunk latch. In addition to what you bought, don't leave change, chargers, phones and other valuables in plain view. Crime is worst at the holidays, but local police get good samaritan calls all year about suspicious people eyeing cars or trying door handles.
