High Country Crime Stoppers pays rewards for information, which leads to arrests; recovery of stolen property; seizure of drugs and the location of wanted persons.

Some important tips to reduce or prevent thefts from vehicles:

  • Always lock your vehicle.
  • Don’t leave valuables in view. This not only means obvious things like wallets, purses, cameras, leather jackets, CD players, etc., but any bags or backpacks that might appear to hold them. If you must leave valuables in the car, use the trunk. If you don't have a trunk, try under the seat or cover the items with a floor mat or blanket. At least get it out of open view.
  • Don’t leave your ID or credit cards in the vehicle. Car break-ins are a gold mine for identity theft.
