A rash of items stolen from cars in the city over the last ten days. Police are looking into 14 incidents of theft from vehicles. Neighborhoods hit over the last week-and-a-half include Locust-Grove, Lewis Mountain and Fry’s Spring. City Police Lt. Ronnie Roberts says in almost all of the cases, the cars were left unlocked. Roberts says there are several things you can do to help prevent that type of crime:

1.) Lock your vehicle.

2.) Leave your exterior house lights on,  if you don’t have motion detector lights.

3.) Remove your valuables from the car.

4.) Never leave anything of value in your car in plain sight.

5.) If you see or hear anything suspicious in your neighborhood, call the police to investigate.
