We all do it: we're pumping gas and we turn away from the car to look at our phone or maybe even go into the store to get snacks. But think about this -- did you leave your car unlocked? Odds are, you may have, and that's when these criminals strike.
Police are calling them sliders, and it's easy to see why when you watch them sliding between cars and slipping away with people's personal belongings and wallets!
The best thing you can do to prevent this from happening to you? Lock your car, bring your belongings with you when you go inside, or tuck them away where no one can see them.
Lesson learned: always remain alert -- even during the most mundane of errands.
