Keep it safe: Simple steps to protect your car in Albert Lea

Don’t be a target: Thieves crave easy pickings. Follow these tips to make your car a fortress:

  • Lock it up tight! Every door, trunk, and window. A locked car is a no-go zone for most crooks.
  • Park smart. Choose well-lit areas, garages, or even your driveway. Darkness is a thief’s friend.
  • Hide your valuables. Don’t advertise. Stash purses, phones, and more in the trunk, out of sight, out of mind.
  • Get loud! An alarm screams “I’m being tampered with!” It might scare the thief away.
  • See something, say something! Report suspicious activity to the police immediately.
