We noticed on our camera system a Hispanic male going through one of our cars on the night of February 4th at 4:30 am above APS. The car was left unlocked, big mistake. He was going through all the paperwork in the glove box and the way he did it made me think he was looking for info as banking statements. This may be a organized group or a single hit.

Take care and be smart times they are a changing.

Very sad,it's a sign of the times. Growing up in SB we never locked our doors,cars or homes. Now days ya gotta lock & set your alarms on Everything! Even your car parked in your driveway. Very Sad.

Since registration is requested at any traffic stop, is there a place to keep this that is safe?

There are several vehicle burglaries per week in San Roque. Without fail, the cars are always unlocked. The last one, the homeowner was alerted when the thief tripped the garage door opener...literally a key to your house left in an unlocked vehicle. Hate to blame the victim, but this is not Mayberry anymore...lock your freaking cars.

Interesting story: My son's truck was broken into at his Northern California College. Besides some basic stuff stolen, they took the Vehicle REGISTRATION.. I thought this odd.. but what then happened a few weeks later, with the name and address off the registration for us as the parents on the registration, they bought information off of the Dark Web, including mother's maiden name and other information.(probably from the Experian hack) . called our credit card company and got them to change the mailing address on the credit card account to them. Then they bought a bunch of electronics.. We found out about it the next day from the card company, filed a police report and put a lock on our credit..etc. BUT, everyone beware. Almost nothing is safe now a days. Consider locking your credit and buying a credit watch service, which we get for free as a Auto Club member. Luckily, it all worked out for us.. just some time lost and the wish to case them down with a baseball bat at nigh!
