Members of the Deland community are reminded to stay vigilant as car burglaries have been increasing recently. The Glenwood Springs subdivision was the latest target of thieves who entered both locked and unlocked cars.
Keeping valuable items, weapons, purses, computers etc. either out of sight or better yet, removed from the vehicle is a good way to deter burglars. Exterior lighting around your home or motion detectors make your home a less appealing target. Finally, a neighborhood that watches out for each other can be a great first line of defense.
