Electric Vehicle Owners – Beware!

Electric Vehicles

It seems that criminals have come up with a new money maker…stealing the charging cables that power the electric vehicles.  The cables themselves are very expensive and they can resell them for that alone.  They are also filled with copper, which is a big money maker for thieves. 

Electric vehicles that are left alone to recharge are easy targets.  All a criminal has to do is unplug the cable and take off.  What can you do to protect your investment? The police have recommended the following:

– If your EV is being charged outside your home, try to use a padlock on the electric wall socket that you plug the cable into.

– The best way is to always plug the cable in your locked garage, but some don’t have a garage.

We hope this article makes you more aware so you can protect your vehicle from these criminals.
