WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA)-- A warning from the West Point Police Department Thursday after a rash of car burglaries.
West Point Police Chief Avery Cook says they've had about ten car break-ins in the last few weeks.
He is urging the community to be aware of valuables left visibly in their car.
Cook says the thieves are either opening unlocked doors or breaking car windows after seeing valuable items like cell phones or wallets inside a car.
He says the thieves are bold because the burglaries happened in broad daylight and in a public parking lot.
But Cook says it also important for residents to lock their car doors at home.
He also urges everyone to watch their surroundings, again lock your car doors and make sure valuables are put away in the car so you don't become a victim.
