MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Moultrie Police want to remind folks to lock car doors.

This week there were several car break-ins and most of the cars were unlocked. A gun was stolen from one of those unlocked cars. Police stress not leaving any personal items in the car. With the fourth of July on Friday, police say car break-ins are more common during the holidays.

“If you're going to the grocery store and you have a weapon in the car, the best thing to do is take it out and leave it at home in a secure place. Don't leave your vehicle unlocked,” said Officer Sandra Matthews.

Police also say don't broadcast weapons or money that may be in your car. Officers will be out patrolling heavily this weekend keeping an eye out for any suspicious activity.
