Kirksville Police are also alerting everyone to an increase in people stealing stuff from unlocked cars. Officers recieved eight calls last weekend concerning unlocked vehicles being gone through and having items stolen. Most of the reports were from the King’s Ridge addition in Kirksville but any neighborhood or public area is at risk. Police say these are thefts of opportunity and leaving your vehicle unlocked will put you at greater risk for theft and property damage. Secure your vehicle and you will be at much lesser risk for theft.
