This is circulating as an email - so may not be new to some here. It is however I think another situation worthy of consideration - more so maybe for our wives. Whether it originates from a genuine LEO is academic as - it is a situation I can see as a possible at least.
Lieutenant Tony Bartolome
You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. Then
you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift into REVERSE, and you
look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space and you
notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you
shift into PARK, unlock your doors and jump out of your car to remove that
paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view.
When you reach the back of your car, that is when the car-jackers appear
out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off! Your engine was running,
(ladies would have their purse in the car) and they practically mow you
down as they speed off in your car. BE AWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS
NOW BEING USED. Just drive away and remove the paper that is stuck to your
window later, and be thankful that you read this email.
I hope you will forward this to friends and family...especially to women!
A purse contains all identification, and you certainly do NOT want someone
getting your home address. They already HAVE your keys!
