Tip of the week
Thieves called “Sliders” steal women’s purses from their cars while they are pumping gas. Women are advised to lock doors, roll up windows and keep valuables close-by.
Women in particular are vulnerable because many typically leave their bags or purses unprotected on the front seat with the door unlocked and the window down.
