Car break-ins are expected to increase with the holiday shopping season. Sixteen thefts from vehicles were reported from Nov. 26-29, according to a report from Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose
In his Patch blog, Rose says that despite constant warnings from police, holiday shoppers ride their luck every year and leave valuables in the car.
During a recent shopping trip, Rose decided to glance through car windows as he strolled the parking lot. “The majority of them were ripe for the picking. From wallets to purses to cell phones and even in once case, a pistol tucked between the seat and console,” he wrote.
