HURRICANE — Hurricane Police are urging people to lock their cars after 11 vehicles were burglarized and one stolen in the course of a single day.
The theft and burglaries were reported Thursday in the Dixie Springs area in Hurricane, officer Ken Thomson told St. George News.
“Lots” of property was taken from the vehicles, Hurricane Police said in a Facebook post, including one firearm.
“Not one of these vehicles were locked,” the post reads. “Several of these vehicles had the keys left inside them, including the one stolen.”
The vehicle that was stolen was later recovered by officers in Hurricane, Thomson said.
There could be more vehicles affected by the burglary spree that weren’t reported, he noted.
Hurricane Police remind drivers of the following to help avoid car burglaries:
- Roll up your windows.
- Remove your vehicle keys from the vehicle.
- Remove all valuables and firearms from the vehicle.
- Lock your vehicle.
