Wilmington PD Reminds Motorists to Do Their Part to Avoid Auto Theft

WILMINGTON, DE — The Wilmington Police Department continues to remind all vehicle owners and operators to do their part to avoid vehicle theft.

Especially as temperatures drop, police urge motorists not to leave their vehicles unattended while running, or while keys are inside of the vehicle.

Whether it involves warming up a vehicle before travel, or leaving a vehicle running while picking something up from a restaurant or business, police are urging drivers to turn off and secure vehicles whenever they are unattended. These simple tips can help prevent vehicle theft.

Police are also reminding drivers to avoid leaving any valuables in plain sight, and to be mindful of spare or valet keys that might be left in their vehicles that could potentially result in a theft.
