          Gas Station Safety Tips:

          Because self-service gas pumps are used by most people today,
          carjackers have identified service stations as excellent locations to
          find plenty of victims. Carjackers simply wait for the moment when they
          can most easily move into a vehicle and drive away. Many drivers leave
          their keys in the ignition and their cars unlocked when they get out of
          their cars to use self-service gas pumps. While the driver is putting
          gas in the tank, the carjacker can simply open the car door, get in the
          car and drive away. This is especially dangerous if your children
          and/or pets are in the vehicle.

          Sometimes, the carjacker will wait until the driver goes to the gas
          station’s cashier to pay for the gas. While the driver is busy paying
          the cashier, the carjacker will drive off with the car.

          Carefully consider where and when you buy gas. Choose a safe, familiar
          area during daylight hours whenever possible. In addition, make a
          practice of filling up your tank when it is half-empty, if possible.
          Never let your gas supply get so low that you are forced to stop for
          fuel in an unsafe or unfamiliar area at a dangerous time.

          In addition, sometimes it’s not a carjacker but a thief who chooses
          self-service gas pumps for his crimes. Most people will leave their
          keys in the ignition and their purses and/or wallets, cell phones, etc.
          on the passenger seat of the vehicle. With doors unlocked, it’s easy
          for a thief to open the door, take your belongings and flee. It only
          takes seconds.

          Some tips when you are at a gas station:

          1. Never leave your keys in the ignition. Take them out of the
          vehicle and lock your car while you are pumping gas.

          2. Do not leave your valuables in plain sight when you exit your
          vehicle. Even with doors locked and no keys, the thief cannot resist
          your valuables.

          3. Pay attention to your surroundings . Do not let your cell phone
          distract you. (As a side note, using your cell phone at a gas pump is
          very dangerous. Cell phones and other electronic devices may have the
          potential to emit electrical charges, and should therefore be left in
          the vehicle during fueling).

          4. If you are going to pay for your gas inside the cashier’s
          office, please do not leave your children in the vehicle, regardless if
          your doors are locked or not. Take them with you. It may seem like a
          hassle, but consider the alternative.

          5. If you are using a credit card at the gas pump, always take your
          receipt or hit the “clear” or “no” button when it asks before
          leaving. Otherwise, you leave your credit card information open for the
          next person.

          Please be safe!

            in the 6400 block of New Hampshire Avenue (W Express Gas Station). The
            victim was pumping gas when a dark-colored 4-door vehicle entered the
            gas station lot. The suspect vehicle pulled next to the victim’s
            vehicle, opened the driver’s door and removed property from the front
            passenger seat. The suspect vehicle exited the gas station and entered
            the gas station lot of the Sunoco Gas Station next to the W Express.
            The suspect vehicle pulled up next to a black SUV, but it is unknown if
            anything was taken from that vehicle. The suspect vehicle then exited
            that gas station and fled southbound on New Hampshire Avenue.

                Gas Station Safety Tips:

                Because self-service gas pumps are used by most people today,
                carjackers have identified service stations as excellent locations to
                find plenty of victims. Carjackers simply wait for the moment when they
                can most easily move into a vehicle and drive away. Many drivers leave
                their keys in the ignition and their cars unlocked when they get out of
                their cars to use self-service gas pumps. While the driver is putting
                gas in the tank, the carjacker can simply open the car door, get in the
                car and drive away. This is especially dangerous if your children
                and/or pets are in the vehicle.

                Sometimes, the carjacker will wait until the driver goes to the gas
                station’s cashier to pay for the gas. While the driver is busy paying
                the cashier, the carjacker will drive off with the car.

                Carefully consider where and when you buy gas. Choose a safe, familiar
                area during daylight hours whenever possible. In addition, make a
                practice of filling up your tank when it is half-empty, if possible.
                Never let your gas supply get so low that you are forced to stop for
                fuel in an unsafe or unfamiliar area at a dangerous time.

                In addition, sometimes it’s not a carjacker but a thief who chooses
                self-service gas pumps for his crimes. Most people will leave their
                keys in the ignition and their purses and/or wallets, cell phones, etc.
                on the passenger seat of the vehicle. With doors unlocked, it’s easy
                for a thief to open the door, take your belongings and flee. It only
                takes seconds.

                Some tips when you are at a gas station:

                1. Never leave your keys in the ignition. Take them out of the
                vehicle and lock your car while you are pumping gas.

                2. Do not leave your valuables in plain sight when you exit your
                vehicle. Even with doors locked and no keys, the thief cannot resist
                your valuables.

                3. Pay attention to your surroundings. Do not let your cell phone
                distract you. (As a side note, using your cell phone at a gas pump is
                very dangerous. Cell phones and other electronic devices may have the
                potential to emit electrical charges, and should therefore be left in
                the vehicle during fueling).

                4. If you are going to pay for your gas inside the cashier’s
                office, please do not leave your children in the vehicle, regardless if
                your doors are locked or not. Take them with you. It may seem like a
                hassle, but consider the alternative.

                5. If you are using a credit card at the gas pump, always take your
                receipt or hit the “clear” or “no” button when it asks before
                leaving. Otherwise, you leave your credit card information open for the
                next person.

                Please be safe!

                  The victim pulled up to re-fuel her vehicle. After having some
                  difficulties with the pump, she proceeded inside the gas station to get
                  assistance. While inside, an unknown suspect crossed the street from
                  the Prince George’s County side of New Hampshire Avenue and entered
                  the victim’s vehicle through the driver’s side front door and took
                  her purse from the passenger side front seat.

                              (Sunoco Gas Station). At approximately 9:30 a.m., the suspect entered
                              the victim’s vehicle through an unlocked passenger door and took
                              property. The suspect is described as a black male - no further.
                              Surveillance showed a Chrysler (suspect vehicle) enter the gas station.
                              An attempt to remove property from another vehicle was met with negative
                              results as the vehicle door was locked. The suspect then moved on to
                              this victim's vehicle and removed property. The suspect then fled in
                              the Chrysler on New Hampshire Avenue. The suspect vehicle is described
                              as a black 4-door Chrysler unknown make, with no front tag. The victim
                              did not notice her property missing until arriving at her place of
                              employment, and then she returned to the gas station and called police.

                                                      On December 13, 2013, at approximately 9:39 am, Takoma Park Police responded for a theft from auto that occurred earlier in the 6300 block of New Hampshire Avenue (Sunoco Gas Station). While pumping gasoline, surveillance showed two black male suspects, between the ages of 25-30, pull into the Sunoco gas station at the north entrance and pull up next to the victim's vehicle. One of the suspects opened the rear passenger side door of his vehicle, leaned over and opened the passenger front side door of the victim's vehicle and stole property. The two suspects were then seen fleeing in a vehicle, that may have been a sedan, black in color, south on New Hampshire Avenue towards the District of Columbia. A clear picture of the suspects cannot be seen on the surveillance video.

                                                      Investigation continues under case #13059840. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to please call us at 301-270-1100.
