Thefts from Vehicles on the Rise!!!

                Incidents of thefts from vehicles, both auto burglary and theft of external equipment, are on the rise!

                Through the first 100 days of 2009, there have been six such incidents, all occurring at the Dale Mabry Campus, with only one theft resulting when the vehicle was locked … a “secure theft.”  In all of 2008, there were 13 such incidents, with 10 occurring at Dale Mabry, with three classified as a secure theft.  Of interest is that all but two of 2008’s thefts from vehicles occurred during the last three months of the year when more people may have began to feel the effects of the state of the economy.

                “Soft-top” Jeep-type vehicles were a common target, but in coordination with the Tampa Police Department (TPD), an undercover operation nabbed a HCC student in the act, who later confessed to multiple auto burglaries … and the retrieval of property … at the Dale Mabry Campus.  Dodge products, particularly the Neon, are more recent targets.  Besides theft of contents, these automobiles are easy to steal due to their ignition type and construction according to TPD.

                Here is what you can do to help the HCC Department of Public Safety (DPS) reverse this adverse trend in incidents of thefts from vehicles:

-          Lock your vehicles!  PLEASE!!!

-          Don’t leave valuable property, such as a GPS, laptop computer, I-pod, camera, purse, and the like, out in plain view inside your vehicle.  If you don’t really need it that day, then leave it at home!

-          Be vigilant …. be a “Hawkeye!”  If you see something that doesn’t look or feel right, it probably isn’t … trust your instincts!  Then call and report it to DPS at 253-7911, or flag down a DPS Public Safety Officer out on patrol.
