Car Prowls Vex Victory Lane

Thursday night, a number of residents on Victory Lane discovered car prowls and thefts of some items. Chris said, “Woke up this morning to a open car door and a missing items from my Jeep. Friendly local car prowlers are at it again. Reminder to keep valuables out of sjght and locked inside when possible.”

Good advice. I park outside all the time and I used to keep a lot of loose change and a cellphone charger in my car. These are tempting targets for opportunists, so I cleaned out the car leaving only cloth shopping bags and an ice scraper inside.

Keep an eye out if you can, and report any suspicious activity to the police (they do keep records of activity and will react when a trend appears to be going on in a particular area).
