If you have ever had to take a child to daycare or school, you know the feeling of the morning rush! Lunches are made, bags are packed and out the door you go to the first stop. Once you arrive, you quickly exit your car, grab your child and their belongings to get them into the daycare/school. You leave your car running and your belongings (purse, wallet, briefcase, phone, etc.) in the seat because you are in a hurry and your hands are already full. You come back outside to leave the school/daycare and your car has been stolen! Now what?
The Marietta Police Department would like to remind the community about some important safety tips to prevent oneself from becoming a victim during the morning rush.
Although there has not been a case like this in Marietta, it does not mean it cannot happen. By following the simple tips above, you can protect yourself from becoming a victim.
