Help deter vehicle thievesOctober 25th, 2012 at 3:16 pm by Bill Diven under Community Affairs
The Auto Theft Unit of the Albuquerque Police Department is hold a free VIN Etching Event Saturday in northwest Albuquerque.
During the 9 a.m.-3 p.m. program vehicle identification numbers will be etched into auto glass as an added precaution against auto theft.
Thieves often replace VIN plates on the dashboards of stolen vehicles while the window etchings are more difficult to disguise.
The event is being held in the parking lot of the Target Store on Coors Boulevard NW at Irving Boulevard.
