Safety urged this holiday season
Although guns have been the main target so far, other items, such as gifts, shopping bags and purses, should not be left unattended in automobiles. Hawkins said during the holiday season people get distracted with shopping lists and so much to do and forget to exercise caution.
“We want to remind everyone this holiday season that they don’t leave their personal belongs in sight for any amount of time,” Hawkins said. “Take your valuables with you. Don’t leave them in your vehicles or anything of value; make sure you lock these things in your trunk.”
