At least seven people who left their cars or trucks unlocked in Kuna Monday night woke up to find items missing from inside — including three guns from three different vehicles.
If there is one concept we here at the Ada County Sheriff’s Office would like our residents to embrace above all others, it would be: lock your stuff up.
The best way to avoid being a victim of theft is to make sure your homes and vehicles are locked all the time.
People who live in neighborhoods all over Kuna, including the Avalon St./School Road and Ten Mile Road/4th Street areas, had items taken from unlocked cars, including two handguns and a rifle.
Thieves also stole items like sunglasses and change from other unlocked cars and trucks in the area.
There have been numerous cases over the years of people “jockeyboxing” – which means they walk through neighborhoods and check to see if cars and trucks — and garage doors — are locked. If they are not, thieves then go through and steal anything of value.
So lock your cars and trucks. Lock your front doors. Lock your garage doors. Lock the side doors to your garage. Just lock it all up – you’ll likely be glad you did.
Anyone with information should call Kuna Police at 577-3860.
