  • Face Masked burglars says:

    Keep the parked cars shampooed and cleaned at least one time per week. Residents are Parking them in the driveway or the Front Street. There is no street parking ordinance, so many people are parking their cars on the street. Be sure to keep the club on the steering wheel and have a lockable gas cap, many cars are having gas siphoned out of them.

    At night time, be sure to keep the yard lights on: front- both sides/ back yards, burglars do not want to commit crimes where they can be seen, so keep as many night lights on as possible. Use LED light bulbs technology, they’re very cheap to run and much cheaper than having to pay the deductibles for cars which have been burglarized or stolen.

    Play musical cars, move the cars around in the street and a driveway so it looks like somebody’s using the car’s 24/7.

    Operational night light does work. CERRITOS PROPERTY OWNERS, keep yards maintained meticulously, more time spent in the garden, LESS time burglars will be cruising neighborhoods.

    MAKE YOUR KIDS, walk and play outside, they are the sheriffs eyes/ ears. Kids are better then burglar alarms, since working remotely from home.
