Operation: Hot Wheels

This week’s featured vehicle is a 1997 maroon Saturn SL2 4dr. It was reported stolen October 04 from the 4100 Blk SW Shenandoah.

The last four-digits of the VIN are 1430 and at the time it was stolen had a Kansas tag of XAR 593.

Police warn that you DO NOT approach the vehicle or its occupants - just call TPD at 368-9400.

Things you can do to help prevent auto theft:

· Never leave your motor running when unattended. This is one of the easiest ways to lose your vehicle, i.e. warm-up thefts on cold mornings, a quick trip into the store, etc.

· Don't loan your car to a stranger or casual acquaintance. Good intentions can result in the theft of your vehicle.

· If you have a garage, use it, and remove the key! If you don't have a garage, park in a driveway instead of the street if possible.

· Steering wheel or steering-column collar locks make visible deterrents, as well as mechanical challenges.

· Never leave a spare key in the vehicle and don’t leave the title in the car.

· Keep valuables out of sight, i.e. cellular phones, pagers, backpacks, purses, CDs, valuable clothing, etc. Valuables in plain view are an open invitation for thieves.
