Thieves target unlocked vehicles in Mt. Juliet

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT JULIET, TN (WSMV) -

Police in Mt. Juliet said grinches are on the loose breaking into unlocked cars in several neighborhoods Saturday morning.

According to Sgt. Tyler Chandler, property was stolen from eight cars in the neighborhoods of Willoughby Station, Willow Creek, Cedar Creek Townhomes and Stone Hollow.

Chandler said crooks made off with electronic devices, phones, music players, wallets and laptops.

Police said vehicle burglaries are crimes of opportunity, and offered some simple steps that residents can follow to minimize their chances of being a victim: keep all car doors and windows closed and locked, do not leave any valuables inside the car, park your vehicle in visible, well-lit area at night and if possible, park your car in the garage.

It is also a good idea to keep a list of serial numbers, including the make and model, of commonly used electronic equipment you have. This aids police in recovering the items if they are stolen.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Mt. Juliet Police Department at 615-754-2550.
