Don't give thieves the opportunity to dampen your holiday spirit. Law enforcement officials say "smash and grab" crimes can happen any time, but are of special concern this time of year when shopping, gift-giving and returns tend to peak.

To discourage criminals, keep your vehicle locked at all times and don't leave gifts, pocketbooks or other valuables in plain sight. If possible, lock valuables out of sight in your trunk, and always park in well-lit and well-traveled areas.
