The following crime-prevention tips were offered at the CAPS Beat 2412 meeting on Tuesday, March 1:
If you’re on the bus or train and hear somebody refer to “going apple-picking,” BEWARE! It means stealing phones, so hold on to yours or put it away.
One way to keep sports equipment and gardening tools safe is to lock them to a ladder in the garage or basement.
Be sure to put your driver’s license number on bikes, scooters, lawn mowers, and like items. The police recover a lot of stolen merchandise, and this helps identify the proper owner.
FYI: Police bike patrols will start on Memorial Day.
