Columbus police urge you to lock your vehicle

After a rash of vehicle break-ins on the west side of Columbus, police are asking you to make sure to lock up your vehicle.

Lt. Matt Harris said there have been more than 20 recent reports of thefts from vehicles in the Wildflower, Shadow Creek and Cross Creek Subdivision.

In each of those cases, the vehicles were left unlocked. Harris talked last month about the importance of locking your vehicle and making sure that you don’t leave valuables inside.

If you see any suspicious activity, you are urged to call Columbus police at 812-376-2600.
