GPS units, money among commonly stolen items

August 10, 2010

Car locks and deadbolts are commonplace on today’s vehicles and residences, but the security precautions often aren’t enough to prevent theft.
“Car break-ins have probably been the biggest crime in the county for years,” said Catawba County Chief Deputy Coy Reid. “(When people steal), it’s usually anything that people can take that’s quick.”
The most commonly stolen items in car break-ins include money, radio systems, CDs and GPS units.
The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office received reports of more than $22,000 in goods stolen from vehicles and residences across the county since Monday. Sixty percent of those reports said the property was stolen from an unsecured vehicle, residence or outbuilding.
“It’s usually when the car is unlocked that they take things,” Reid said. “They’ll take anything that they can see.”
