HPD stage car break-in to build awareness about crime that takes only 6 seconds

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Houston police are taking a different approach to drive home a very important message about car break-ins.

During a staged break-in Tuesday morning at Memorial Park, it took a man only six seconds to break into a car. Houston police say these robberies happen all over the city -- from malls, to parks and even fitness clubs.

Officers say there are ways you help make your vehicle less of a target no matter where you're parked.

Police say car break-ins can be prevented if people will take the time and extra steps to secure their personal items.
