Beware Of Car Thefts

It’s something Anchorage police always see this time of year, an uptick in car break ins. Luckily, there are things you can do so you’re not an easy target. A big one has to do with warming up your car.

If you have a remote starter, great! If not, make sure not to leave your car unattended.

“Obviously cars are stolen for very many reasons. One of them, of course, can be a crime of opportunity. So someone walking down, they see a car that’s sitting there unlocked, running, or maybe it was unlocked, break a window and take off and the vehicle’s gone.”

APD also has a reminder for holiday shoppers. Keep all those gifts packed in your car out of sight.
