I am Lacey Police Detective Jon Mason on behalf of Crime Stoppers of South Sound. Local Police Departments request your help in preventing future Crimes of the Week.

During the cold weather local police departments are once again seeing vehicles left running unattended in driveways to warm up. This is an invitation for theft, and far too many vehicles are stolen this way during the cold months. Instead of doing this, ice scrapers are available to clean the ice from your windshield at many places around the county, and even paying for one is far less expensive than having your vehicle stolen. You may find that your insurance won’t cover the loss if your vehicle was stolen while left running unattended.
