Thieves do not take holidays
Sergeant Ken Harrington says, “Thieves do not take holidays, they take advantage of them by cruising the parking lots waiting to take advantage of those who have done all of the work.”
He urges shoppers to keep their vehicles locked and their valuables out of site during the holiday season and throughout the year.
