Vehicles are stolen for a variety reasons: to salvage parts, for joyriding, to sell them abroad, etc. An individual is stealing a vehicle if she/he takes it with the intention to deprive the owner of it either temporarily or permanently.
If you are witness to your vehicle being stolen, dial 9-1-1 immediately. Describe the vehicle, the thief and the direction the robber went in. If you are not witness to the robbery, call 9-1-1 so that a police officer can write a report.
Ways to prevent vehicle theft
To prevent theft at your residence, do not leave any documents with your address in your vehicle.
A theft from a vehicle is when someone steals something from someone's car, whether or not they damage the car in the process.
Bags, compact discs and laptop computers left on the seats are an invitation to thieves. A few seconds is all they need to get away with your belongings.
