Criminals who rob drivers — and even their cars — are a concern for police everywhere.
This is especially true as new methods constantly emerge in which criminals become even more savvy at robbing people.
Now the public is warned about a new, sneaky trick that thieves are using to steal valuables, or even entire cars, from drivers.
The trick is quite simple; thieves begin by targeting parking lots.
The criminals then sneakingly place an empty plastic bottle on top of the car’s right tire. That way, the driver can’t see it. Then, they wait.
When the driver is about to drive away, a strange noise sounds as the bottle is cracked broken. Unaware of the bottle’s existence, and the thieves on the lookout nearby, a driver’s first instinct is of course to leave their car and investigate where the sound came from.
It’s at that moment that the thieves complete their plan.
As the driver inspects his car, the thieves can now access the unlocked vehicle, which they couldn’t easily do before.
