Lock, Take, Hide Reminder

locktakehideThe WFPD would like to remind you to Lock Your Car, Take Your Keys, and Hide/Remove Your Belongings! A large majority of the vehicles burglarized are being left unlocked and thieves are stealing everything from stereos and electronics to purses and guns. It only takes a few seconds to remove a weapon from your vehicle and secure it elsewhere so that it doesn’t fall in the wrong hands.

WFPD Crime Prevention Specialist Officer Jeff Hughes says, “Most of the guns that are being reported stolen from a vehicle burglary are from unlocked vehicles. These guns are falling into the hands of the thieves and being used in other, more violent crimes. My advice would be to never leave an unsecured gun, or any other valuable item, in a vehicle. By removing them, you eliminate the criminal’s opportunity.”
