C.O. car break-ins spike over the holidays


Ken Fayal caught a man breaking into his vehicle on camera.

“He’s walking around and he comes out of the darkness and just walks deliberately to my truck,” he said Wednesday.

The video shows the man rummaging through the truck on Rock Bluff Lane in Bend.

“I left my door unlocked, so admittedly that’s my fault — but you still shouldn’t have people rifling through your things,” he said.

Fortunately for Fayal, the criminal didn’t find anything to steal.

But unfortunately for the public, the holidays mean the number of car break-ins will likely spike.

Steve Meyer, owner of Cascade Security Inc., has geared up, as the company patrols Cascade Village Shopping Center.

“Absolutely, our staffing does increase during the holidays,” he said. “Of course Black Friday, big staffing here at the mall, and on the weekend as we get closer to Christmas.”.

Meyer wants to remind the public to be aware of their surroundings, lock doors and keep presents in the trunk or covered.

“What we’re looking for is that the customers do have a good shopping experience,” he said. “They come in, they find their gift that they want to purchase, they’re safe and they have a good time.”
