Crime Prevention Tip:

This is the second day in a row that a theft occurred in the gym while the owner worked out in the same room. In both cases, the property was left unattended and unsecured. In this case, the owner failed to invest a quarter to protect his property. Do not rely on your presence in the room to deter a thief. If you are not actively watching your property or you do not secure your property in a locker, then your property is at risk for being stolen.
