Sulphur Springs Police continue to get reports on cars being broken into on a fairly regular basis. Police Chief Jay Sanders has one suggestion that could help–lock your doors. Sanders said “handle pullers” walk around and pull the handles on parked autos. If the door opens, the individual enters the auto and extracts cellphones, wallets, money, and other items of value.
Sanders once again asks that residents to lock their cars, especially at night and during the day as well. He said those who open the car doors are looking for something to sell or trade. He encourages locking auto doors when out shopping and when you are at home. He stated that one should remove any thing of value from the auto at night. A few auto windows have been broken as well.
