The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office advises residents to lock their cars and that you can prevent car burglaries. There’s been a recent spike in car break-ins, according to HCSO Community Resource Deputy Jeff Carson. and Fairway Village Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Cyn Tickell.
“75% of recent car burglaries involved unlocked cars. Please remember before heading to bed, if your car is outside, remove any valuables and lock it. Every time a car is found unlocked by a burglar, it must be like a slot machine jackpot. We become the Good Luck Casino,” Tickell writes in her NW newsletter.
