If you have a global positioning system-based navigator in your vehicle in Columbia, it might attract the attention of a thief.
The Columbia Police Department said autobreakers have stolen approximately 75 of the devices from mid-March to mid-May in business and entertainment districts of the city.
The targeted vehicles either were not locked or the devices or mounting equipment were in plain sight, police said.
The department said valuable items should not be left in cars and, when possible, mounting devices should also be tucked out of sight to avoid attracting attention from thieves looking for them.
