TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- A busy parking lot is often times an attractive location for a thief to steal items from a car.

Officer David Northway says as surprising as it may sound, often times they find car owners are actually helping thieves steal by leaving car doors unlocked.

Northway says drivers should:

      ALWAYS lock your car doors.

      NEVER leave your car running.

      ALWAYS keep your valuables out of site.
