The West Point Police Department is now asking for help from the public when it comes to reducing the amounts of thefts in the city.
According to The Daily Times Leader, the police department has been dealing with an increase in thefts from homes, vehicles and even a nursing home.
Police are saying that the thieves are getting smarter when it comes to not being caught and that some of them are scouting out locations before they strike.
They are urging the public to keep an eye out for suspicious behavior and to report it.
"If people would call in and say if something is suspicious, even if it isn't anything at all. But still, if you call in it will help a lot more then not saying anything at all,” said Wavie Davenport, a former police officer from Columbus.
