Secondly, you should try to Park under the cameras or the guards. If not, at least in places of a mass congestion of people. If you go to the police with information about the theft within 5-20 minutes, the chances to return the car by 10%. If you go for an hour or two, find will already be difficult. Most often stolen cars find messages in social networks,” – said the founder of the portal dtp.kiev.ua Vlad Antonov.
