The Sierra Vista Police Department is advising neighbors to make sure they are locking their cars.

According to officers, SVPD has seen a spike in car break-ins throughout the month of November. On Sunday November 26 alone, the department received 8 reports of car burglaries.

In all 8 cases, police say the cars were unlocked. Victims lost various items ranging from money, medication, and even guns.

“Its common for burglars to check door handles while passing through an area and steal anything they can from vehicles that happen to be unlocked… Dont make a burglars day easy. Lock your doors and report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood,” SVPD Public Information Officer Cpl. Scott Borgstadt said in a statement.
