Argo police warn of car break-ins
By Scott Buttram
Argo Police Chief James Downing sent out an alert Friday morning warning residents to be vigilant in locking their vehicles after several brek-ins in the area.
“It is that time of year again where crooks are looking for free things at your expense,” Downing’s alert said. “We have already had a few cars gone through, please lock your vehicles at night when parked in your driveway. They are looking for unlocked vehicles to get into to see what they can find.”
Downing asked residents to keep an eye out for suspicious activity and notify law enforcement if they see anything unusual.
“If you see someone walking your neighborhood at night that you do not know, or a strange car riding through slowly please call 205-467-3333 and have an officer come check them out,” Downing said. “Usually they will let someone out to walk through yards checking car doors until they find one unlocked, so please be aware of everything in your neighborhood and your surroundings where ever you are. Make sure all of your alarms are turned on.”
