City Police investigating high number of vehicle tampering cases
Fredericksburg Police are investigating a number of reports of vehicle tampering and valuables being stolen from unlocked cars. Remember:
– Keep your vehicle locked at all times. Unlocked vehicles are easy targets for criminals
– Never leave valuables, such as purses, laptop computers, portable music players, or cash in your vehicle. If you must keep important items or purchases in your vehicle, place them in the trunk or completely out of view
– Do not leave book bags, gym bags, or luggage in view as criminals assume they contain valuables
– File a police report if items are stolen from your vehicle!
Stolen items are often recovered and are returned to their owner.
However, if stolen items are not reported to the police, there is no way for items to be returned to their owner. If an item is stolen from you in the City of Fredericksburg, call our non-emergency line at 540-373-3122
