More than likely the morons behind thefts DO read this so they can brag to their hoodlum buddies they made it on SooToday.
Tis the season for our local bike theft ring to start cruising the city looking for bikes in yards to steal. And also unlocked vehicles to get into.
Lock you doors on your cars and homes, secure your windows, lock bikes in yards or better yet put them inside any storage/building so not visible. Don't leave purses/wallets/GPS/Ipods overnight in your car where visible.
These are all common sense but being summer and many here still deny the city has a crime problem, we sadly need to remind everyone what to do.
And ladies...STOP WALING AWAY FROM YOUR PURSES LEFT IN YOUR CARTS IN STORES!!!!! At least cover them with your recycle bags or items you plan to buy so thieves can't do a fast snatch and go. What also works is using the baby strap through the strap on the purse. If a thief tries to grab the purse it will then be tethered to the cart and will pull attention to him/her.
