Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies got a 3AM call from a citizen on Woodside Drive that two guys were burglarizing cars on Woodside and Stanton Drives. Upon arrival, deputies say they caught Carson City resident Steven Viola, 34, helping himself to the inside of a number of vehicles that WERE NOT LOCKED!! Deputies say Viola was drunk and had some items on him that were stolen from one or more of the cars.
Deputies arrested Viola and booked him into the Carson City Jail for burglary.
Deputies say even if your car is in a garage you should lock your vehicles. A locked vehicle is usually skipped over when thieves are looking for a quick “grab and run.”
DON’T MAKE IT EASY for car burglars. LOCK…YOUR…VEHICLES!!!! And take your valuables into your home. Don’t leave them in plain sight!
