It’s a small time crime that's a real nuisance. Bend Police have seen a rise in car break-ins over the past few days. It's something that Bend PD spokesman Steve Esselstyn says they can almost set their calendar to: "Sometimes we'll see an increase when school gets out. There's a couple of reasons, obviously, the kids are on the street. But some of it has to do with the tourist season. There’s a lot more cars, a lot more opportunities and toward the end, when we get another surge of tourists coming for end of the summer fun, sometimes we'll see an increase too." Esselstyn says the basic tips are easy: don't leave anything you don't want stolen visible; lock it in your trunk or leave it at home because it's a crime of opportunity. And don't think that covering up your valuables with a blanket or coat will detract a thief; sometimes it makes them more curious as to what you wanted to hide. And always lock your car door and keep the windows rolled up.
