Collier deputies remind drivers to lock cars amid recent burglaries

Published: Updated:

NAPLES, Fla. Deputies went door-to-door in the Palm River community, warning residents to lock their doors as part of a burglary prevention program.

Over 56 car burglaries were reported last month, most of which could’ve been avoided if the cars had been locked, deputies said.

“It’s important for us to go out and remind them to follow those common safety practices,” Sgt. Tom Orr said.

Deputies recommend either removing all valuables from your car or keeping them out of sight.
