Watch your vehicles!

Just wanted to make everyone aware to lock their vehicles and\or set the alarms even when home. Vehicles in Littleton have been broken into while parked right in the yard WHILE PEOPLE WERE HOME recently and on more than one occassion within the last 3 weeks!! Catalytic converters are also being stolen off any vehicles easy enough to slide under. It only takes seconds to steal a converter with a power saw. Also be cautious about where you park at night. Myself, I would refrain from parking behind the movie theater, laundromats and other out of the way free parking if any other more visible option is available.

A woman had her son's video camera stolen right outof her car parked in Walmart. She actually saw who was parked beside her. They have video cameras looking out into the parking lot. So, hopefully they will find the scum that is doing this

That sucks. Installing an alarm like a Viper system with shock sensors is a good deterrent. Especially if someone is trying to saw off your converter. The shocks from the saw will set off the alarm system. It may prevent them from actually stealing it and save you from filing an insurance claim and\or paying upwards of $800+ for a new converter. Out of curiosity I looked up a converter for my vehicle on a popular parts website and the list price is $900+!!! I think the viper alarm is cheaper and most insurance companies give you breaks on your policy if you have one installed.
