I heard about the poor security at the Rim...thank God the guy got his dog back! Then someone told me that La Cantera also has problems with stolen or burglarized cars. Is it fairly safe to park there or should I avoid it? I do need to go there, but now I'm wondering if I should. What do you think?

Seriously? Your car can be stolen anywhere.

I shop at La Cantera and the Rim all the time. I never had any problem with my car and I always take precautions. If you have an alarm, make sure your packages are out of sight and doors are locked you should be fine. Also La Cantera security is always driving around.

I don't take any more precautions than I take anywhere else when I go to the Rim. To be honest, I take more precautions when I go to Planet Fitness on McCullough and 410.

Even during the regular season I see bike cops out at the Rim.

Anything you hear now is based on the season. Don't let that scare you.

I shop there too and I've never had any problems. As long as you don't leave valuables out in you should be fine.

My sister was just there (Rim) yesterday. They were picking up furniture at Home Goods store, she saw police car parked in front and overheard a lady on her cell informing the other person that her car had just been stolen. Poor thing.

Yes, that's the sort of thing I was hearing about. Just trying to be a bit more on the safe side, I'm going to avoid the malls and mall-like shopping areas for a while. When I go into town without DH, I don't always remember to remove his electric wheelchair from the car before leaving. But even if I do, the lift is always still in place. The thought of the car, lift and possibly the wheelchair being stolen at the same time is especially scary. Replacing all that would be especially difficult for us, even with good automotive insurance coverage.

I recently had my new escalade stolen from Perry's Valet at La Cantera, I would just like to make everyone aware of the lack of security there, or their concern. From what I understand this is happening on a daily basis there, just trying to get the word out. It has been a nightmare dealing with everyone involved.

So the staff had a key? That's a clue.
