The woman whose car was stolen didn’t want to go on camera. Masterson says she feels for her and wants to spread the word.

“There’s not much we can do, but if people can take recordings, get pictures of their faces, things like that, that might help,” Masterson said. “Just turn the key and you can remove it,”

With her wheel lock and GPS tracker in place, she hopes these precautions will prevent her from falling victim again.

“It’s so frustrating to have to go through the trauma of feeling vulnerable and having your property damaged for no good reason,” she said.

So far this year, Milwaukee police have reported over 3,300 stolen cars and counting.

According to the police, one of the best ways to protect yourself is to have a steering lock.
