AZ Auto Theft Authority kicks off campaign to end vehicle crimes during holidays GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Car thieves are on the prowl this time of year, preying on unsuspecting holiday shoppers. Edy Sanchez of Glendale, recently had his car broken into in his gated community. "Yes, I get upset because I work really hard for my stuff, and for somebody else to take it away from me, I don't think it's fair," said Sanchez. Vehicle crime is a serious problem across the Valley and it may get worse.
Year after year, the number of car break-ins and auto thefts increases around the holidays. James McGuffin is the executive director of the Arizona Auto Theft Authority. He said that one of the reasons they see a spike in incidents is because drivers aren't taking enough precautions.
