Lock it or Lose it
The Sonora Police Department is asking citizens to lock their vehicles when left unattended.
Recent vehicle burglaries in Sonora resulted in valuable items being stolen.
Chief William Dudley advises people to also remove all personal property, especially valuables and firearms before locking and leaving their vehicles.
Although locked vehicles help prevent theft, items left in plain sight increase the temptation to break into a car or truck.
Please be smart and lock vehicles as well as homes and other buildings to prevent unwanted theft.
