Crimestopper Tip

The holiday season is a prime time of year for theft from motor vehicles. Take precautions by locking your car, using outdoor lighting, locking cars inside the garage and securing garage doors.

A reminder from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office: Do not leave any valuables inside your vehicle when parked at your home, on the street and especially in plain view in public areas. Total removal of personal property and personal information is the best defense. Clean out glove boxes, door wells, arm rest storage areas and cup holders. Reduce impressions and opportunities by staying alert!
