As the temperatures rise, so do the number of car break-ins
It's been an incredibly hot June, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are seeing many drivers leaving their windows cracked or leaving their vehicles running to cool them down.
That makes their vehicles easy targets for burglars.
“Some of the things that we do to lead to victimization is create a level of comfort for ourselves, not really realizing that level of comfort for ourselves can actually make us a victim,” police said.
Officers told Channel 9 there's already been a 10 percent increase in car break-ins this month. For the year, there have been 4,700 car break-ins.
