Auburn Chief of Police Martin D. McCoy is asking that citizens of the community take extra time, effort and precautions as it relates to their vehicles. Remove valuables from your vehicle, park close to your home or in a well-lit area, set your alarm system if available. Most importantly, he says, lock your vehicle. There have been several recent incidents of items stolen from cars, but only unlocked vehicles were targets. It is believed that a locked vehicle would deter many of these crimes.
