Six reports of thefts from vehicles in the city were reported over the weekend. Brandon Police Chief Dave Kull suspects the thefts was the work of kids.
“This is a kid’s crime,” Kull said.
Vehicles parked in neighborhoods in the southwest area of the city were targeted between late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, Kull said.
Items taken include GPS units, a purse and CDs.
“It was a lot of little stuff,” Kull said.
Nonetheless, Kull reminds residents to lock their doors, remove keys from their vehicles, keep valuables out of sight in their vehicles, and leave outdoor lights on, if possible.
