Thieves Targeting Vehicles With Valuables Left Inside

The Southlake Police Department is seeing another increase in burglaries of motor vehicles in the last six weeks. We are aware that many Southlake residents are discussing this trend and that discussion will help us spread the word to residents to be extra vigilant when parking or leaving their vehicles.

We are again urging citizens to protect their valuables by not leaving purses, wallets, laptops etc. visible inside their vehicles. car broken window

Since February 3rd, 2016, there have been fourteen (14) Burglary of Motor Vehicles (BMV). Several have occurred at local daycares, during drop off and pick up times, while others have occurred near homes and parking areas.

In several cases, car doors were unlocked with valuables left inside. In other cases, car doors were locked but valuables were left in plain view prompting thieves to smash windows and grab purses and other items.

Remember it only takes seconds for a thief to steal your valuables. ​Police Chief James Brandon says,”Thieves will watch and wait near places such as day care centers, and parks to see if you take your purse or valuables with you. If they observe you leaving your vehicle empty-handed, they will take that as an opportunity to look inside your vehicle and take what they want.” Always be aware of your surroundings.

You may hear the words, “Hide, Lock, Take” a lot but it’s important to follow these guidelines every day. Hide your things, Lock your car, and Take your Keys.
We appreciate citizens working with the Southlake Police Department to help reduce thefts and ​burglaries of vehicles. Together we can make a difference.

Additional Tips for Preventing Mail Theft:

Packages that are left unattended make for easy targets for criminals. Package thefts commonly occur during normal working hours (8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) when many people are not home. To avoid being a victim, here are some tips to prevent packages from being stolen from your front porch:

  • If possible, and allowed by your employer, have packages delivered to your workplace.
  • If having packages delivered to work is not an option, have packages delivered to a place where they can be received in person, such as a trusted neighbor who stays at home during the day or perhaps a retired relative.
  • Request that the shipper require a signature confirmation or hold your package at their pick up facility until you are available to pick it up in person.
  • If purchasing from a large retail store, request that the package be shipped to there nearest store for pick up at your earliest convenience.
  • Provide delivery instructions to the shipper so that packages can be left in a safe location, such as behind your gate, side of the garage, etc. The goal is to have the package out of sight from the street and sidewalk.
  • It is always a good idea to sign up for delivery alerts from the shipper (i.e. email confirmations, etc.). That way you know when your package has been delivered.
    If you see any suspicious behavior please call the police non-emergency number at (817) 743-4522.

Safety Reminder for Dragons

In Texas, a vehicle is burglarized every 2 ½ minutes and a vehicle is stolen every 5 minutes. Those statistics are staggering especially when combined with a recent increase in vehicle burglaries in several North Texas cities, including Southlake.

To help keep citizens from becoming a victim of theft, the Southlake Police Department is urging everyone to be more vigilant about locking their car doors and checking to make sure items of value are not visible to thieves.

Police say it only takes seconds for a thief to break into a vehicle and steal a purse, wallet or other valuables; which can also lead to identity theft.

Working together to reduce crime, Carroll ISD and the Southlake Police Department have placed “Hide, Lock, Take” signs in school parking lots. The signs serve as a reminder for drivers to Hide your things, Lock your car, and Take your keys.
