If you LIKE it Lock it

Thursday, September 27, 2012

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office would like to remind all local citizens to lock their car doors at night, there has been a significant increase in nighttime car burglaries over the past few weeks and the trend appears to be increasing.  The suspects in most cases are only taking loose items from unlocked vehicle doors and not causing any damages or taking anything from locked vehicles.  All of Lafayette Parish has been affected by these types of crime and trends of this sort have affected citizens throughout Acadiana and the entire region.  Deputies are asking citizens to double check that their vehicles are locked prior to retiring for the night and to report suspicious persons or vehicle in the late evening hours and early morning hours.
