Cadiz Police say they have seen an increase in vehicle burglaries over the past few weeks and are encouraging motorists to lock up their cars and to remove or hide valuables.
A news release says the thefts from vehicles haven’t been isolated to any particular area of town and that money, electronic chargers, GPS devices and medication have been among the stolen items.
Cadiz Police say residents should always lock their vehicles when they are shopping and when they park them for the night at home. Residents should also not leave valuable items out in plain view. If they must be left in the vehicle, they should be locked in the trunk or in the glove compartment.
Another tip is to not leave chargers plugged in, as it tells a thief you may have something worth stealing in the car. Also, don’t hide a spare key on your vehicle, as they are often easily found.
Anyone seeing suspicious activity is encouraged to call Cadiz Police at 522-8888.
