NORWALK, Conn. -- The Norwalk Police Department offered a crime prevention tip via its Facebook page: Please remember to keep vehicles locked and to remove all valuables.
A review of weekly crime statistics shows an increase in car burglaries recently, the post said.. Although the patrol officers and investigators have identified suspects in many of these incidents, residents should keep vehicles locked at all times and remove all valuables.
Do not leave purses, GPS devices, laptops or other items visible in vehicles, police said. These thefts are crimes of opportunity, and one of the easiest methods of preventing these thefts is by taking common sense steps, police said. "With your help and our work to continue identifying suspects, we can reduce the occurrence of future incidents," police said.
