Here's a note from Senior Lead Officer Maria Gray:

The majority of the vehicles that are getting broken into are via window smashes. But you’d be surprised how many people simply leave their vehicles unlocked. Either way, it proves that anything left in your vehicles is fair game for the thieves. Using their tricks of the trade, they can smash a window silently and remove your items virtually undetected by people standing relatively close by. Don’t assume you’re safe because you’re parked in a busy area. Always, always, always, remove your belongings or hide them in the trunk. Pass the word. Thanks!
