"A couple of reminders about your safety while out and about…

Message from the Lincoln High District Office: There has been a rash of robberies from parked cars. These have often been crimes of opportunity. When items of any real or perceived value are visible through the window, perpetrators have been increasingly bold in breaking windows to snatch whatever they can grab. DO NOT leave any bags, purses, wallets, phones, etc., in your vehicles -- even for minutes -- and genera...lly be careful with your personal items wherever they are. 'Tis the season for some people to gift themselves . . . . Let's limit their options.

A friend works at Hobby Lobby and posted this message on FaceBook: Beware...friends and family we had TWO armed robberies in the parking lot at Hobby Lobby mid afternoon yesterday [Wednesday]. A group of five men in a white SUV robbed a customer of his wallet, phone and purchases on his way out the front door to his car as well as two other customers on their way to the Mexican restaurant around the corner. Tis the season, please don't let your guard down.

And finally… at Trader Joe's on Saturday -- a shopper had her purse over her arm, leaned over to look at something, and a woman reached in and lifted her wallet. Another shopper witnessed it and questioned the thief. She said it was her mother and she was playing a joke. The brave witness asked the shopper, who said it was not her daughter. Fortunately, she dropped the wallet and ran and the store clerks took off after her (it was scary…). Soooo, zip/button up that purse, NEVER LEAVE YOUR BELONGINGS IN THE SHOPPING BASKET, walk with purpose, and avoid using your cell phone in parking lots!"
