WALKER- Police are warning people about leaving their vehicle doors unlocked or not hiding valuables when they leave vehicles in parking lots, especially at night.

"We have had several vehicle burglaries during the last couple of weeks, mainly late at night and in commercial parking lots in the Walker South area," officers said in a department-issued Facebook post Wednesday.

"Even if your vehicle is locked, leaving items of value in plain sight invites a broken window or other forced entry," officers reminded people.

Officers said in the most recent cases, crooks were targeting vehicles where the doors were left unlocked. But, in one case, someone locked their vehicle but left a purse in view, and it was stolen when the bad guys broke in.
