When will people learn that they cannot leave their belongings in an unlocked locker, or car for that matter?

My guess is that the people who read local news are locking their cars, because they see the reports and are aware of the risk. If readers would mention these reports to other people they know who may not be aware of them, I think a lot of these thefts would be prevented.
