The Orinda Police Department reports an increase in thefts from parked vehicles around town.
“Often times, valuables are being taken from cars that were left unlocked,” police said in a statement. “Please help us fight crime in our community by ensuring that you do not leave any valuables in your vehicle and you lock your vehicle whenever it is unattended.”
Police say if your door is locked, thieves checking car doors may simply move on.
