TRAILHEADS — Vandalism to cars parked at Centennial Trail parking lots and boating access sites continues to be a problem.
Paddlers report a smash (a window) and grab incident at Mirabeau Park over the weekend, although they said nothing of value was taken.
Dealing with these opportunistic low-life theives is much like preventing damage by raccoons and other vermin: Don't leave and “food” out.
In otherwords, it's not enough to make sure nothing “valuable” is left in your vehicle at a trailhead.
Make sure that nothing at all tempting is visible through the windows to entice a creep into a smash and grab incident.
