Protect Yourself From Purse Thieves At The Gas Station

Thieves are targeting purses left in the open at gas stations, not just to steal your money, but your identity. The video above shows this theft in action.

To protect yourself, Sheriff Ken Jenne of Broward County, Florida offers common sense advice like

• Roll up your windows
• Lock your doors
• Don’t leave keys in the ignition
• Secure your valuables before stopping the car

Interestingly, thieves prefer SUVs, as the increased height gives them more cover when sneaking through the passenger side door. — BEN POPKEN
