It’s a crime of opportunity and takes just seconds. You’ve got your back turned while pumping gas and a thief snatches valuables from your unlocked car. Before you know what’s happened, the thief is long gone.
We’re unfortunately seeing this crime time and again and it’s entirely preventable. Since early December, we’ve investigated at least 30 thefts from cars at gas stations in our county.
The Prince George’s County Police Department produced this important safety message. Take a few minutes and watch the video. Please also share with your friends and family.
