6 Things to Do Right Away If Your Laptop Gets Stolen

Laptop Theft, Theft Prevention October 20, 2016

Airports are one of the most common places laptops are stolen from.

There are an almost infinite number of places from which a laptop computer can be stolen, with some of the most common sites of laptop theft being airports, hotel rooms, cars, cafes, and offices. At the world’s 36 biggest airports, over 10,000 laptops are lost or stolen every week, and thousands more are stolen from smaller airports. Most of these are never recovered, but that’s partly because many people assume there’s no chance of getting their laptop back and don’t even bother to report it missing.

Why Auto Thefts Make Halloween Even Scarier

Auto Theft October 19, 2016

Auto Theft at Halloween

According to the 2015 Holiday Vehicle Theft Report by the National Crime Information Center, Labor Day and New Year’s Day were the 2014 holidays when the most cars were stolen. But just closely behind New Year’s Day was Halloween, with 2,010 reported car thefts that day.

Holidays prompt people to do things differently, and it may cause people to take chances they might not ordinarily. So it’s essential that car owners don’t let their guard down just because everyone’s in costume, or because you’re parked outside a great party at a friend’s house.

Opportunity theft of mobile devices is a big problem in the United States, and it takes many forms.

The Rolls-Royce Hood Ornament is Also a Brilliant Anti-Theft Device

Auto Theft, Theft Prevention September 9, 2016


Back in the 1970s and prior, stealing hubcaps was a petty criminal pastime. This was way before custom wheels and rims became so popular. At that time, hubcaps were made of metal and added value to the car. Also, they were fairly easy to steal and sell. That trend faded out as automobile manufacturers started replacing metal hubcaps with plastic ones and the market for used hubcaps deflated. Today, hubcaps are rarely stolen, unless they’re stolen from a classic car outfitted with particularly nice ones.
