Police are advising Brandon residents to keep valuables stashed out of sight and to lock the doors on their vehicles, after a rash of thefts reported Wednesday.
Multiple reports came in that day of vehicles being entered and things stolen from inside. The vehicles were all parked in the southeast area of the city, and police say that no damage was reported to any of them — so they were likely left unlocked.
Stolen items included cash, cameras and other electronic devices, personal documents, tools, CDs and DVDs.
Police say that it's best to lock vehicles when they are parked and to remove valuables from them, or to stash them out of sight — especially in the trunk.
