Wiltrout said there are simple things people can do in order to prevent their car from getting broken into, like locking the car, and parking in well lit areas. .

Law enforcement also offered some tips for people who may see suspicious activity, such as people lurking around cars for an extended period of time. Anyone who sees suspicious activity is to call the police department right away and make note of the suspect’s description.
