Nelson Police Department advise: lock your vehicles

Police are advising you to lock your vehicle doors after more reports of what appears to be someone going through unlocked vehicles in Nelson.

Shortly before 2 a.m. Friday, police were called to the Uphill area and advised several vehicles had doors open and appeared to have been entered.

“These criminal acts are opportunistic and vehicle owners can take preventative measures to minimize these incidents,” Sgt. Corey Hoy said in a written statement.

The Nelson Police Department says vehicles should always be secured and all valuables removed or hidden from sight.
