Convenience/Gas Store Owners Warn of "Slider Crimes"

Police across the United States call them "sliders," but do you know who they are?  They are thieves sneaking into cars at gas stations and stealing valuables from unsuspecting victims. 

Here's how it works:  Thieves wait for a driver to get out of their vehicle to pump gas before they "slide" into the car.  Crouched over, the thief opens the passenger doors, steals a purse or other valuables, and slides back out without the driver noticing. 

Most of these thieves target women who tend to leave their purse in the passenger seat making it easy for a robber to snatch it. 

Police recommend locking your vehicle at the pump, even if you are right by the car or take your purse with you and have it in your possession.
