DPD Updates Thefts and Holiday Reminders

Good Evening:

Last week we had a couple of vehicle break-ins in the area of beat 321 (Westgate Dr/ Chapel Hill Blvd/ Cameron Blvd) where the vehicles were left and the items taken were left in plain sight.  2 handguns were taken in this manner last week.  We want to remind everyone to please not leave items of value in your vehicle and always, always- lock your vehicle no matter where you park it or how safe you think it is.  It is the nearing the holiday season.  This is a good practice to remember as you conduct your holiday shopping.  Packages and gifts in plain sight in your vehicle can make easy targets for theft.

Something else to remember…..according to the weather forecast, it is supposed to get cold at night in the next week.  Many will warm your vehicles while you get ready for work.  In the past, vehicles have been taken while they have been warming up. Please do not leave vehicles unattended while running.

As always, thank you for all of your support and good luck in the next week.  Happy Veterans Day to all who have served.  See you at the PAC meetin g on Saturday.

Best Wishes,

Lt. Mark Morais
