Increase in auto thefts recently during cold mornings:

The Lodi Police Department has seen a rise in early morning auto thefts during cold days. Each time, the victim started their car, left the keys in the ignition, and left the car unattended and went inside. 

We remind you to NOT start your cars and leave it unattended with the keys in the ignition. Not only will your car get stolen, and potentially be used to commit other crimes, but it is illegal in NJ. You may be subject to a summons and fine for leaving your vehicle running while unattended. Please work with us and take steps to avoid this. Always lock your car, never leave keys or valuables in sight, and NEVER start your car to warm up and walk away.
