“First and foremost we try to encourage them to try to remember to lock their vehicles at night. Secondly we would ask them to keep any valuables out of sight,” said Southampton Police Lt. Mark Groeber.
Southampton has seen an increase in car thefts over the last month. On April 11, Southampton police reported a vehicle had been stolen from a home on Glendale Road.
Police are reminding residents to lock their doors and to call the department if you see anything suspicious.
