The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department wants to get the word out to the community about stolen vehicles.
Police want to remind everyone how important it is to not leave your keys in your vehicle or just leaving your vehicle unlocked. If your vehicle is unlocked, criminals have access. They can steal items from the inside, or it can lead to your vehicle being stolen.
Recently Ford and Chevrolet half ton trucks have been targeted at local hotels and apartment complexes. Once these types of vehicles are stolen, they have been used to target ATMs without the anti-theft crossbar attachments. There have been cases where a truck was stolen from Texarkana, and later used in another town to target an ATM.
Police want everyone to be aware of what is happening and remind everyone of what we all can do by locking our vehicles and lowering vehicle thefts.
