The Syracuse Police Department has issued a warning to residents in the Strathmore neighborhood regarding a recent surge in car thefts, specifically targeting Kias and Hyundais. This is due to a security flaw that allows vehicles to be started without a key. To combat this issue, it is recommended that car owners invest in a steering wheel lock as a preventative measure. Furthermore, both automakers have developed anti-theft software that is free for owners to download. In the interest of community safety, it is important to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the authorities immediately by calling 911 or the Syracuse Police Department at (315) 442-5222.
