Albany Police Urge Residents To Lock Their Vehicles

If someone has to leave valuables in a vehicle, he suggests that they lock their doors and hide the valuables in the trunk or under the seat.

Glover said if your car is broken into by a thief, you should file a report immediately.

“Filing a report is one way that we can also track and see where we’re having criminal activity. If you got a neighborhood that has some cars broken into and nobody files a report, and nobody calls the police, we’re not even going to know that we have a problem in that area,” said Glover.

You can report a car break-in to the Albany Police Department at (229) 431-2100.
