Lock it or Lose It ! Don't be a victim of a larceny from your vehicle !

Police Department Offers Tips on How to Avoid Larceny from Autos Summer is almost here and the Farmington Hills Police Department warns residents that warm weather always brings a rise in Larcenies from Automobiles (LFA). At least 70% of LFAs are committed on unlocked vehicles. Locking your vehicle and removing any valuable items such as purses, wallets, money, electronics, and firearms is strongly advised. If you must store any items in your car, the Police Department recommends that they be locked in the trunk of the vehicle and out of plain sight. Common places where larcenies from autos are committed include daycare centers, schools, parks, gyms, and even your own driveway! Criminals are opportunists and are targeting unsuspecting people who leave items in their cars while they go about their daily tasks. Here is a simple reminder that the Police Department asks you to turn into a common routine in your day – Practice TLC. TLC stands for TAKE out your valuables; LOCK your vehicle; and CLOSE your windows and sun or moon roof. Set a routine time before dark each evening to double check that the vehicles in your driveway are locked or better yet, park your vehicles in the garage if possible. Please report any suspicious activity you may observe. If you find yourself a victim of an LFA, contact the Farmington Hills Police Department at 248-871-2600 immediately – before going through the vehicle. Remember the phrase - LOCK IT OR LOSE IT!
