AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Americus police said that they're still having a problem with car break ins.
They said that most of them aren't centralized in a certain part of town.
Officials believe most of the incidents are crimes of opportunity for people walking by.
They're once again issuing you a reminder to residents.
"Well the main thing is, we just have to remember to take things out of the car. Leaving your laptop, your wallet, your firearm in plain view in your car is just an open invitation," said Americus Police Chief Mark Scott.
Clean car brochures are available at the police department.
Police have made several arrests for previous break-ins.
Chief Scott says that residents who see a suspicious person in their neighborhood should call 911.
