Have you ever experienced a coin attached to the door handle of your car? If so you have been a target for thieves.
This new method, by police called "sliders" has started to spread among car thieves. By pushing a coin between the door handle of your car, preventing it from locking, they can easily get into the car, steal valuables or even run off with the vehicle.
The strategy is that the thief, or thieves, push a coin between the door handle on the passenger side of the car. Then they wait for the owner to open and drive the car, which they follow. When the car owner parks the car and locks it, the passenger side remains unlocked. The thieves can then help themselves with whatever is inside the unlocked car when the owner goes away or is not paying attention.
The method to avoid being robbed in this way is not exactly rocket science. You check if there is a coin stuck in the door handle of your car. And if you are so lucky to find a coin, you have both avoided a robbery and earned a penny.
The police should of course be notified if you find a coin.
