Kingston police wish to remind citizens to not leave valuables in your vehicle and be sure to lock your doors. These types of thefts are usually thefts of opportunity. Someone trying door handles will enter unlocked parked vehicles and steal anything of value. On rare occasions a thief may smash a window or cause damage to get into a locked vehicle, especially if something of value can been seen from the outside. This forced entry creates a greater chance of the thief being caught due to the noise and is therefore far less common.
