Keeping auto property “safe”
The information in [“Avoiding property
theft from your car,” July 2013] is missing one
extremely important bit of information on
how to protect against property theft from an

is available in the warehouse, on
Costco.com or both.
; Products are scheduled to be available
during The Connection’s month of
publication and are noted as in warehouse “early in month” (1st to 10th),
“mid-month” (11th to 21st) or “late
