Warmer weather and sunny days ahead invite drivers to roll down the windows, and for some, drive with the top down on their cars. Unfortunately, that same wonderful weather invites thieves too.
The Methuen Police Department reminds our Citizens to be cautious when leaving a vehicle open. While it may be inconvenient to put the windows and top up every time the vehicle is parked, it is even more troublesome to find it ransacked.
Cell phones, loose change, Ipods, CD'c, and GPS units can be easily stolen from the vehicle when the top is down or windows open. Important papers such as insurance and vehicle registration information often found in the glove compartment are also at risk of being stolen. This paperwork could help a thief gain personal data that might lead to identity theft. And last but not least, the vehicle can be stolen.
