Police in Detroit have initiated a Help Eliminate Auto Thefts (HEAT)
program to reduce the number of vehicle thefts that occur during cold
weather. According to Lieutenant Robert Ennis of the Detroit Police
Department, “Whenever we see subzero weather, we see a rise in vehicles
being stolen – at gas stations, and even right out of people’s

Ennis warned, “It is tempting to keep your engine running when you
run in to pay for your gas, but you are making it very easy for someone
to steal your vehicle while you are inside.” To prevent theft, remove
the keys and lock the doors, even if the vehicle is only to be
unattended for a minute.
