Tip from Roseville Police: Movie theaters and fitness center parking lots are favorite targets of thieves-they know that people tend to leave valuables inside their cars and won't be back for an hour or two. Leave your valuables at home or take them with you. If you must leave valuables inside your car, store them out of sight in the trunk before you get to your destination.
