Local Officials Remind Residents To Lock Vehicles

Sulphur Springs police and Hopkins County Sheriff’s officers urge residents to be sure to lock their vehicles and secure personal items, to guard against theft.

Police have responded to several reports over the last few weeks of stolen vehicles and vehicle theft attempts. Most recently, one Chevrolet Silverado was reported stolen from a Jefferson Street business and another Chevrolet Silverado reported stolen in another county was recovered on West Industrial Drive, according to police reports.

While the keys weren’t in the vehicles in previous reports, the vehicles had been left unlocked. The ignitions in the vehicles were destroyed by suspects stealing or attempting to steal them, according to police.

Hopkins County sheriff’s officers responded to a complaint Tuesday of a four-wheeler and trailer theft and Wednesday to a report of an ATV missing off of a rural property, according to HCSO reports.

Investigators remind people of the need, even out in the country, to remove keys from all vehicles including ATVS and to secure them, to guard against theft.
