Holiday Shopping Safety, Don’t
be a Victim!
Webster Police Department would like to remind residents to be cautious when
holiday shopping. Drivers who are leaving laptops, cell phones, purses, and
firearms in their vehicles, are setting themselves up for a smash and grab
burglary. It only takes seconds for a person to break into your vehicle and
grab your belongings. Hiding items under the seat or in the center console is
not going to keep items safe, thieves know all the hiding places.
Webster Police Department suggests shoppers take purchases home before going to
the next store or restaurant, and always take your keys and lock your doors! Car
burglaries are far too common and unfortunately on the rise. Don’t be a victim,
and if you see suspicious behavior while out shopping this holiday season, call
a wonderful and safe holiday season!
