WHAT IS SLIDER CRIME?
A slider crime is a theft of vehicle contents that starts with you being followed by a trail vehicle. It frequently occurs at gas stations. When you pull into a gas pump lane, the trail vehicle pulls into an adjacent lane. After you step out of your vehicle and start watching the gas pump or simply looking around, the thief opens your opposite vehicle door and steals your purse, phone or other valuables. By the time you finish pumping your gas, the thief in the trail vehicle is long gone!
