Vehicle break-ins in Twin Falls are happening with great regularity right now, and in most cases, it's the owners of these automobiles that are enticing thieves. There are things vehicle owners must avoid doing if they wish to dodge a break-in.

I've had my vehicle broken into one time in my life. It happened in the early morning hours, sometime between 2 A.M. and 8 A.M. I know this because I was out late that evening, and was surprised to see the aftermath when I was getting ready to leave for work just a couple of hours later. I made a terrible mistake that I believe tempted the thief to commit the act.

Loose change is one of the leading reasons these people break the law to enter your vehicle, according to nationwide.com. Recent news reports have verified that there has been a rise in these types of thefts in the Magic Valley. By not leaving items in plain site, you can reduce the chance of a break-in greatly.

Auto alarms aren't going to prevent theft one-hundred percent of the time. Because most break-ins happen early in the morning, the reaction time by vehicles owners takes a while. If something of value sits in plain view on a seat or floor mat, a smash and grab will take less than 10 seconds to successfully pull off, and most people won't even make it out of bed by then.

Phones, CDs, backpacks, and electronics are also items that get stolen from vehicles on a regular basis.
