Discussed already in our forums last week here, vehicle break-ins are on the rise in Venice Beach. Last night there was a whole new spree of car break-ins and the M.O. seems the same as last week: windows smashed and cars rifled through but most contents left in place as it seems the crooks are only after small electronics like iPods and GPS systems.
It is suggested that you clean your car out completely and hide any type of cable connectors that make it appear that you have iPod connections and GPS systems that may be in your glove compartment. If you see suspicious activity around your car, it may be worth dropping a dime and calling the police to check it out.
