When 'Puffers' are Stolen, the Community Pays
There’s good news and bad news for Puebloans who have their running and unattended vehicles stolen by opportunistic thieves.
The good news is the vehicle owner likely won’t have to pay higher insurance rates or premiums on their comprehensive insurance, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the theft.
