Lieutenant Horton, of the Shelby County Sheriff Department, recently presented a report to the Board of Commissioners that vehicle break-ins had increased (as it has in the metro area).
He mentioned the best protection was locking your car. His advice was to "don't make it easy, lock your car!".
I hope all Lakeland residents take the time to lock your car, not leave valuables in the car etc. and "don't make it easy"!
