The Grand Junction Police Department deals with all kinds of theft, including those from vehicles. Based on their experience, here are four tips - including a humorous one - to keep you from becoming a victim.

Tips one through three are common sense things that are often forgotten in the rush of life or the thought that you won't be a victim of a theft from your car.

The fourth, while not practical for most, is incredibly funny and a guarantee that what a thief thinks is going to be nice payoff is something just the opposite.
