FOCUS: Protect Your Gas

Rising Gas Prices Can Result in Increased Gas Theft / Siphoning from Vehicles

Taking these steps will help decrease your chances of becoming victimized:

  • Park in a locked garage. If possible, consider purchasing a locking gas cap.
    • Available anywhere they sell auto parts/supplies.
  • Park where your vehicle can be seen by others.
  • Choose a well-lit area, NOT remote or hidden such as behind a business.
  • Make sure doors and windows are closed and locked.
    • Never leave anything of value in your vehicle.
  • If you see any suspicious activity around vehicles, call the police at (520) 682-4032 or 911. 

Also remember, NEVER leave children or pets unattended in your vehicle or without the air conditioning on, even for a short time, as the heat rapidly rises in an enclosed area and can cause severe harm or death.
