Simple Prevention Tips

The Sheriff’s Department says third row SUV seat thefts are a growing problem in the area.  The suspects are targeting our shopping centers and some residential neighborhoods.  Replacement seats cost more than $2,000 and are often a special order item.  There are companies that produce and sell third row seat locks.  The locks are designed to work with specified SUV seats and guarantee that thieves will not make off with your investment.  In addition, look for parking spots where you can back in against a wall or building to make the hatch and window harder to reach.

If you see suspicious person(s) or activity in your neighborhood or business, call Cerritos Sheriff’s Station at (562) 860-0044 or 911 immediately.  It is a good idea to keep the Sheriff’s Station phone number stored in your cell phone for quick reference.
