Note: Never leave anything in your vehicle. Not even for 15 minutes. What you know to be a gym bag filled with sweaty clothes to a burglar looks like a bag full of treasure. All it takes is for a burglar to walk by and notice something that might contain valuable items. It’s a good idea to even tuck away phone charging cords and loose change.
