NASHVILLE, Tenn.– Music City is no more that one where people use to leave doors unlocked or purses misplaced while nobody would mind it.
A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, December 13, through Saturday, December 19, shows that 37.5% of the automobiles taken (nine out of 24) were easy targets because the keys were left inside or were made available to thieves.
The police department’s PARK SMART campaign strongly urges citizens to lock their automobile doors, secure any valuables and REMOVE THE KEYS.
Officers also urge citizens to SHOP SMART by not leaving purses or other valuables unattended in shopping carts, even for a very short time. An unattended purse is an easy target for a thief.
People wishing for those ‘better days of the past’ might enjoy rather staying home watching old-time movies.
