Elyria – Elyria Police are warning those who use Garmin’s or TomTom’s to pull them out of their cars before the bad guys do.

Police took reports last Friday from two victims of GPS thefts in the area of the Midway Mall. The first was in the parking lot of the Harry Buffalo around 6pm. The other was an employee of Texas Roadhouse on Market Drive. Both victims returned to their car to find the passenger side windows broken and the GPS units missing. In both cases nothing else had been taken and both valued at $150.00.

Police say that thieves have recently snagged about 15 GPS units throughout the city. They say that people should remove the units from the windshields if the car will be unattended. They also suggest that you pull the suction cups as well, the bag guys see that and will go fishing through your car to see if you are hiding the unit under the seat or in the glove box.
