Prevent Thefts With Nighttime Routine

The Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s station often receives questions from the public on how to prevent a theft from your car or home. The deputies want to remind everyone of several simple steps to help prevent theft of your property. Make these tips part of your 9 p.m. routine:

  • Lock your car.
  • Never leave valuables in plain sight. This is one of the most common reasons why thieves target a vehicle or home.
  • Take your keys/key fobs with you.
  • Never hide a spare key on the vehicle.
  • Roll up windows completely.
  • Park in well-lit areas. If your home has outdoor lights, use them.
  • If you have a garage, use it.
  • Activate alarms.
  • Lock your garage door.
  • Bring in your mail.
    If you see any suspicious activity, please call the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s station at (818) 248-3464. If it is an emergency, please call 911.
