[SUPER=03-Roanoke Co.;]

HEAT stands for "help eliminate auto theft" and yesterday county police provided free VIN etching at Tanglewood Mall.

VIN numbers are permanently etched onto the glass of an automobile using a chemical. This deters thieves because in order to change the identity of a vehicle they have to replace the glass, which is costly. Speaking of money-- car theft is the most expensive property crime in Virginia and often leads to violence.
