Police Warning About Car Thefts In East Aurora, New York
Car thefts happen in even the safest towns. East Aurora has been a safe community for years, but police are warning not to let your guard down.
Unfortunately, there was a string of car thefts in the village last night. According to a post on their Facebook page, most of the thefts happened to cars that left the key fobs in the vehicles. They are warning people not to leave valuable items in their cars at all.
This post on their facebook page describes what happened.
"Recently individuals utilizing stolen vehicles have been in our town and village, at night, going through unlocked vehicles. They are stealing anything valuable and taking cars if keys/fobs are left in them. These criminals are brazen and dangerous and have no respect for human life. They have led EAPD and other agencies on high speed chases.
LAST NIGHT THREE (3) VEHICLES WERE STOLEN FROM THE VILLAGELOCK YOUR CAR! DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR!
AND, DO NOT LEAVE KEYS/FOBS IN YOUR CAR!!!!!!!!"
It's a good reminder to that often thieves will prey on people who are away for holiday weekends. Make sure to remove valuables from your car and if you can keep your car locked up, do it.
Someone left this tip in the comments as well...
"*** If your car is a push button start. Take a ziplock bag and line it inside and out with tin foil. Put your keys in the bag at night so thief’s can’t amplify your signal from inside your house.***"
Those push-button ignitions are incredibly convenient for the car owners but it's also convenient for thieves who are able to hack their way in with them.
