I saw an article in the local paper this morning–somebody was walking to their car in a parking lot and suddenly the lights went out. When he woke up his briefcase, laptop, jewelry, wallet were all gone. No idea what happened, no suspects, no chance to figure things out. So, as I keep saying, check your 6″. And remember that parking lots are prime places to find a target (victim). Why? Because you are distracted by looking for your car, finding the keys, carrying all the things you want to take with you. And because parking lots with cars in them have lots of dark shadows in which to hide and wait. So be careful.
In my next several posts I will try to give some tips about how to deal with this situation.
