Shoplifting is the biggest crime committed in Fairfield, but theft from vehicles is right behind it. There were around 200 thefts from vehicles in 2017, Dickey said.
“We can knock out a lot of thefts, and a lot of heartache, if people would lock their car doors,” he said.
The police suggest not leaving valuables in a vehicle, especially in plain view. They also encourage completely closure of windows and removal of detachable stereos and face plates.
The most common items stolen from vehicles include:
- GPS devices
- laptop and electronic devices
- music discs
