RED SPRINGS - On March 17, 2023, a car dealership in Red Springs, North Carolina fell victim to a theft. The incident occurred when thieves gained access to the building, found car keys in the dealership’s office, and stole several cars. Local police are currently searching for the suspects involved in the crime.

So how do thieves gain access to the keys? In some cases, employees may be involved in the theft, either through negligence or collusion with the thieves, or simply by force.

It’s important for car dealerships to regularly review their security protocols and make necessary improvements to ensure maximum protection. For example, keys could be kept in a locked room or key management system, and only authorized employees should have access to them. Or, additional measures such as surveillance cameras, security guards, and an alarm system. They can also work with law enforcement to proactively prevent thefts. This can include conducting regular security assessments with local police departments, sharing information about recent thefts or suspicious activity in the area, and participating in crime prevention programs. Another important step in preventing car thefts is to educate employees on the risks and best practices for securing the dealership and its assets. This can include training on how to identify and report suspicious activity, as well as emphasizing the importance of following security protocols.

This highlights the importance of vehicle security, particularly for a dealership. Take extra steps today to secure your keys with 1Micro!
