It's no secret that thieves are smart. The technology thieves have allows them to steal from innocent people who probably don't even realize it is happening until it's too late.

Thankfully, the "good guys" like the Freeport Texas Police Department  have our backs, and make videos like this to keep us informed, on alert, and safe.

Be on the lookout for devices like this, and share the information with everyone you know. Staying informed is the most effective weapon we have against thieving trickery such as this.

Be safe and smart, my friends.
