As summer comes to a close and autumn makes its way in, we often think about all the positive parts of the passing season. Cycling, backyard dinners, driving with the windows down are just a few of the things we love about summer.
Unfortunately, there are negative aspects of the warmer months that many people don’t put enough concentration into; mainly being easy thefts for robbers.
We’re reviewing the top three most often stolen summer items so you can protect yourself throughout the fall and be prepared for next summer!
Cycling is a great way to get around in the summertime. Unfortunately bicycle theft is a major problem in both big cities and small towns. If you’re looking to keep your two wheels around for next summer, here are some security measures you can take against theft:
No matter where you live, backyard theft happens. Thieves can steal thousands of dollars worth of furniture, and it’s usually scarily easy for them to do so since patio furniture is often lightweight and easy to carry.
So how can you protect your furniture?
In the summer and into the first weeks of fall, you’re more likely to drive with your car windows down and therefore more likely to forget they’re down once the car is parked. Items commonly stolen from cars include:

If you must leave your car for a long time and don’t have access to a garage, try to park in a busy, well-lit area.
