MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie police are asking everyone to keep an eye out for criminals this holiday season.

They are urging shoppers to watch for people looking to break in to cars and steal valuables.

If you see any suspicious behavior around shopping areas or in neighborhoods they urge you to call police and report it.

"Make sure that they are leaving their vehicles secure. Not leaving their keys in their vehicle. Not leaving important or expensive items where they can be seen in the vehicle and that eliminates those crimes of opportunity," said Maj. Tonero Bender with the Moultrie Police Department.

This warning comes after a Moultrie judge was the victim of a Christmas criminal.

Superior Court Judge Brian McDaniel was sitting on the front porch of his home in the 1100 block of 1st Street Southeast Monday night when two men robbed him.

At least one of the men had a gun. Police are offering a reward in the case.    

The Moultrie Police ask that if you have information on the robbery or see any suspicious behavior to call 911 or the  Moultrie Police Department at (229) 890-5449.
