A recent rise in the amount of car break ins — especially unlocked cars — is cause for concern for York County Sheriff’s Deputies.
Sheriff Bruce Bryant Thursday unveiled a new campaign called ‘Lock it or Lose It,’ designed to encourage drivers to lock their doors after exiting their cars.
“It only takes a second to hit that key fob or press the locking mechanism,” Sheriff Bruce Bryant said.
Bryant also encourages hiding valuables out of sight, so wanna-be thieves will be less tempted to break your window glass.
Lock it or Lose it stickers are now available at all district offices for the York County Sheriff and deputies will carry them on patrol, sheriff’s office spokesman Trent Faris said.
Since January 1, 2014, 216 car break ins have been reported in the sheriff’s office jurisdiction. Of those 216, most cars were left unlocked.
