Maynard Police Department Helps Battle Car Thieves

On April 7th, the Maynard Police Department and the Governor’s Auto Theft Strike (a unit of the Massachusetts State Police) held a very successful vehicle identification number (VIN) etching session at the Maynard Police Department.

Over 50 vehicles were processed and the owners received a certificate entitling them to a 15% or more discount on their comprehensive auto insurance.  To make cars less attractive to thieves, the VIN number was chemically etched into the windows of the vehicle.
