Car-hopping is the act of walking down a street, usually at night, and casually checking every car on the street to see if it is unlocked. If a car is found unlocked the car hopper searches the car for valuables to steal. “Thieves can victimize a neighborhood in minutes and draw very little attention to themselves,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant Victor Medico. “If they have success they’ll be back,” Medico added.
