Deputies investigate at least six thefts from unlocked vehicles

Car thieves have been busy again in the Ford City area and are taking advantage of people that leave valuables in unlocked cars.

Deputies investigated six car burglary reports on Wednesday, taking reports from victims on Polk, Taylor, Fillmore and Buchanan streets.

Sgt. Martin Downs said people should take all valuables in side and lock their cars.

“It’s very important that you lock your car. These guys are going down the streets looking for unlocked cars,” the sergeant said.

Downs also encouraged anyone who sees suspicious activity at night to call 911 and report it immediately.
