    Theft Notice: Prevent Vehicle Break-ins

    Untitled-1With the recent vehicle break-ins in the area and neighboring communities, Haines City Police Department would like to remind citizens to remove valuables from vehicles.

    Smash-and-grab thieves typically aren’t criminal masterminds who craft clever schemes to swipe your stuff. Most are casual opportunists. They see something they like, so they break in and take it. Keep your valuables out of sight.

    Whether you’re at home, the park, or the gym, never leave items lying out on your seats, dashboard or floor:

    • Phone
    • Purse or wallet
    • Laptop (or its bag)
    • A briefcase or backpack
    • Shopping bags
    • MP3 player or other small electronics
    • Cash
    • Keys
