CAR BURGLARY PREVENTION

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office reported that at least 10 vehicles were burglarized and 2 vehicles were stolen from Redington Beach this past week.  The Sheriff’s office would like to remind our residents of a few methods to reduce or eliminate this from happening:

  • Never leave the keys in your vehicle.
  • Always lock the doors, even when you are away from the vehicle for a short time.
  • Remove items (purses, tapes, CD’s, books, cash, etc.) from the vehicle when possible. If you can’t take them out, put them in a place that is out of view (in the trunk or tool box)
  • Remove “pull-out” style stereos and/or removable faceplates of stereos. (if equipped)
  • Park in lighted areas.
  • Park in garages or on driveways or near your house or apartment so that the vehicle can be viewed periodically.

Other vehicle security considerations:

  • Steering wheel lock bar or steering column locking cover.
  • “Engine kill” switch.
  • Car alarm.
