Over the past several months, Nacogdoches has experienced a significant rise in automobile burglaries. While these burglaries have occurred citywide, a large concentration have been in the eastern section of town, off East Main and Center Highway, in the area of East Oak Lane and Pitman Street.
Some of these cars have actually been broken into, but a large number have been left unlocked and valuables left on the seat. Please, lock your car, take the keys, and place valuables in a secure area, such as the trunk.
If you have any information about these car burglaries, call Crime Stoppers at 560-INFO, or submit a tip to www.nctips.com. All tips are confidential, and you never have to give your name. If the tip you give results in an arrest or grand jury indictment, you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
