There have been several reports of car break-ins in our community over the past few days. Frederick Police are very aware of the problem and have suspects. They urge you to be aware and take precautions to keep your property safe. Lock your car doors, especially if parked on the street but even if you park in your garage and have outside access to your garage. Don’t keep valuables in the car. Remove phones, other electronics and even sunglasses each evening.
Should you be a victim of this vandalism or any other crime, DO NOT TOUCH your vehicles or doors, call the police immediately. Today’s technology allows the police to use DNA evidence and if you touch any surfaces that may have been touched during the event, you contaminate the scene, making it harder for the police to trace and track down the perpetrators.
