You would think we could get a reprieve from thieves for a little while. We work hard for our possessions; we don’t want to worry about losing them to jerks who can’t respect other people’s stuff.
But unfortunately, it seems the jerks are at it again. And worse, they’re not going anywhere.
According to the FBI, in 2014 law enforcement reported more than eight million property crimes for a total loss of approximately $14.3 billion. Billion.
So it’s definitely worth doing what you can to prevent theft — and knowing what to be on the lookout for is a great place to start.
The battle against thieves is never-ending, but we can’t stop trying.
As the criminals think of new, crafty ways to part us from our hard-earned goods, we have to find ways to thwart them.
Bait cars have become an effective tool to deter would-be car thieves.
Some bait cars have been outfitted with invisible dye systems.
When the thief activates the system by stealing something, they get sprayed with the dye, which shows up under ultraviolet light.
