Crime Prevention Tip of the Week: Always lock your car

Did you know the Steamboat Springs Police Department has taken dozens of reports this year from people who have had their cars entered illegally and valuables stolen from within their cars?

Did you know nearly every one of these crimes involved a car that was left unlocked?

Don’t let yourself be an easy target. You can greatly reduce your risk of becoming a victim in these situations by always locking your car, never leaving valuables in plain view and by parking in well-lit areas whenever possible.

Routt County Crime Stoppers is available 24-hours per day to receive crime tip information from the public at 970-870-NABM (6226) or by texting your tip to 274637. Be sure to begin your text with NABM. 

Tips leading to the apprehension of individuals responsible for crimes committed in Routt County may be eligible for a cash reward.
