Lieutenant Tim Williams with the Mishawaka Police Department says that bad habits become a crime of opportunity for crooks looking to get their hands on your valuables.
"We need to stop leaving things in our cars," said Williams.
On April 2, someone went on a crime spree and broke into cars and stole credit cards, electronics and even social security cards.
This doesn't come as a surprise for police.
"The weather is warmer, more people are out and about," said Williams.
With the warmer weather, things like cell phones or a wallet left in your car are being swiped more often.
If you see anything suspicious, you're encouraged to speak up.
