    CORPUS CHRISTI - Some of the people who shopped at the HEB in Moore Plaza Friday were surprised to find report cards on the windshields of their vehicles.
    The cards were courtesy of members of the police department's auto theft task force who were prowling the parking lot looking for vehicles that had purses and other items in plain sight just begging to be ripped off.
    It was a pro-active effort to raise public awareness about auto thefts and auto burglaries before the start of the holiday shopping season.
    "We just want to make people more aware of what they're doing. We all sometimes get complacent because we haven't been the victim of a crime or we haven't had anything happen to us," CCPD Lt. LAuren White said.

    Not a bad idea!
    Proactive is better that taking a theft report on goods you will likely never see again.

    A true but very sad commentary on our society. You are responsible for a thief's behavior because they can see your property in your locked car. If the police would pursue the small time criminals even a little crime would drop.

    I really think it's a good idea to help keep people thinking about what they leave in plain view or what peeks a criminal's interest. Especially with the upcoming holidays
