There's a way to crack down on car thieves this weekend in Prince William.
Local and state police will do free vehicle identification number etching at the Manassas mall from 10 to 2 Saturday. A chemical is used to engrave you car's uniquevin into all of the windows. Then if it is stolen, the thief would have to replace all the glass before trying to sell it, making your vehicle a less attractive target.
