The holiday shopping season is upon us and if you're one who takes purchases out to the trunk of your car and returns to continue shopping in stores in the same shopping center, think about getting in your car and moving it to an entirely different parking space.
"Thieves are watching you," said CSLEA Foundation Chairman Kenny Ehrman. "They are just waiting for you to walk away from you car so that they can break in. Make it look like you are leaving the shopping center completely. Park away from your original spot, be aware of your surroundings, keep nothing of value in plain sight and remember to lock your vehicle. At night, park in a well-lit area."
