Marquette County Sheriff’s Office provides tips to prevent auto theft

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) – The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office reminds drivers how to prevent carjackings.

So far this year, the sheriff’s office has investigated five auto thefts, not an increase from last year. But, to prevent more from happening, the bureau recommends that you keep the doors locked and the windows open when the vehicle is unattended.

Marquette County Sheriff Greg Zyburt also advised keeping your vehicle in your garage if possible.

“Something that’s happening across the state and even across the country is that people are stealing catalytic converters that are going and removing them from the vehicle because they’re so valuable,” Zyburt said.

The bailiff also reminds you not to leave expensive items in an unattended vehicle.
