Police Say Lock Out Crime


By Lisa Blackwell

Montgomery police say residents need to lock out crime.

A recent rash of car breaking and enterings are a result of motorists leaving their doors unlocked.

Officials say B and E’s are a crime of opportunity.

People should always lock car doors no matter where they are parked and remove the temptation.

Major Brenda Mitchell, Montgomery Police, says, "Any valuables, sunglasses, purses, even change in your coin holder, make sure you have all that stuff concealed so if someone passes by your car they don’t see anything of value that they would even like to attempt to get into your vehicle and get."

Last weekend 9 cars were hit by thieves, 8 of those were unlocked.
