Residents reminded to keep the vehicles locked up after break-ins

Monday, February 11, 2008

The Brazil City Police Department is reminding local residents to lock their vehicles after several reports of vehicle break-ins over the weekend.

"We had reports of five vehicles broken into around the Parkview Estates (just south of the Brazil National Guard Armory) and Southgate Apartments area from Friday evening through Sunday night," Detective Clint McQueen told The Brazil Times Monday. "Only miscellaneous personal items were taken, but people really need to remember to lock their vehicles."

Because of the inclement weather, McQueen said people should report suspicious activity by individuals walking around late at night.

"Think about it, it's just too cold for people to be out for a stroll in this type of weather late at night," McQueen said.

To report suspicious activity, contact the Brazil City Police Department at 446-2211.

Honestly, what's locking the doors of a vehicle going to prevent? If a thief really wants to get in, they will. I'd rather leave the doors unlocked to avoid the worst circumstances & take all valuable belongings indoors and away from the vehicle.
