The DeLand Police Department is urging citizens to lock their vehicles, and to remove from plain sight any valuables that may be left in their vehicles.
On Tuesday 12 December 2017, a number of vehicles were broken into in the area of John Thomas Avenue. In almost every case, the vehicle had been left unlocked. This is a very common occurrence and invariably leads to property inside the vehicles being stolen or the vehicle being tampered with.
Again, PLEASE lock your vehicles and keep valuables out of plain sight!
