NYC Police Operation Aims to Prevent Car Theft


In an effort to reduce theft, police in Brooklyn are sending friendly reminders to car owners not to leave valuables inside their parked vehicles.

Under the theft-prevention operation, 76th Precinct officers in Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill take photos of visible valuables through car windows. The precinct then runs the license plates and sends the owner a flier that says, “If we spot it, so can thieves,” along with the photo.

The operation goes into effect next week.
