Tips to help prevent auto theft/theft from auto – Howard County Government

You can make you and your vehicle less likely to be victimized with these tips. 
Year-round, thieves target vehicles to either steal them or steal from them. These reports can increase when the weather warms, during holiday season, or whenever an individual or group targets neighborhoods in Howard County. These crimes occur in a variety of neighborhoods, but thieves typically target high-density residential areas, typically during the overnight to early-morning hours.  
We encourage you to report any theft from vehicle to police, including if your vehicle has been tampered with but nothing has been stolen. This helps us track trends and identify suspects. You can make a report online or by calling the non-emergency number at 410-313-2200. For thefts in progress, call 911.
