Coastal Bend residents making it easy for theft-minded crooks, police say

Police want you to be aware of how to stop that from happening.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Melissa Castro the CCPD crime prevention specialist detailed what we are doing that is making it easier for thieves to target our cars such as not locking their doors.

Lock, Hide, Take is the message CCPD wants you to come away with.

Castro says with the pandemic keeping most people away from brick and mortar stores and shopping online they may forget to take those basic steps to keep their holiday gifts properly protected.

Police will be out in force patrolling highly trafficked areas through the new year.

Shopping centers located on the southside of town such as Kohls, H-E-B Plus and Walmart on Saratoga are also on CCPD's radar this year.
