Locking doors can stop car theft

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It's a common sense reminder from the cops, lock your car doors if you don't want your car to go missing.  

Albany responded to at least five cases of cars being broken into or stolen over the weekend. Several of them could have been prevented if the owners would have just locked the doors.

Police also want neighbors to look out for one another.

"We're encouraging people to be nosy neighbors. Look out, if you see any strange people in your neighborhood or any strange cars, please call police immediately," said Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks-Whitley.

If you have information about stolen cars or any other crime tip for Albany police, call Crimestoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
