Yesterday, RPD received at least two reports of “smash & grab” type thefts from vehicles. Redmond Police understand how disheartening it must be to come out to your vehicle to find the window broken, and items missing. This type of crime is often the result of valuables or containers/bags which potentially could contain valuables, left visible in the vehicle. Redmond Police stress the importance of rolling up windows and locking doors. However, it is additionally necessary to remove from view anything of value, or something which may appear to contain valuables, such as a bag.
Remove, roll-up, and lock-up; these three steps will likely reduce the chances of you becoming a victim of a theft.
