Some help­ful tips In the past week there have been a num­ber of cabin break and en­tries, as well as theft from ve­hi­cles. It is not un­usual to see inci- cle and don’t leave them on the seat of the ve­hi­cle. If a thief can see per­sonal items, they will at­tempt to take same.

Al­ways lock your doors to your ve­hi­cle and your home. Leave on out­side lights in the night. Plant or trim hedg­ing and trees away from doors and win­dows so that thieves can­not hide.

Re­mem­ber that you are a vic­tim and no one de­serves to have their per­sonal items stolen. Re­port all thefts and crime.
