Ask a Cop: Can I alter my registration to prevent car thieves from coming to my house?

Sgt. Chris Yagelski


Q: I read on Facebook that, for safety reasons and to prevent burglaries, you should not keep your original car registration in your glove box because a car thief would be able to locate your house with the address listed on the registration. Instead you should make a copy of the registration and “Black Out” the address. What do you suggest?
