Muscle Shoals police investigate multiple car burglaries

MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) - Multiple car break-ins have Muscle Shoals residents on high alert. Thieves are breaking into cars and are looking for anything that is valuable.

Investigator Dustin Terry said people make the mistake leaving bags, firearms and personal information in their vehicles. Just this week, surveillance videos caught crooks opening doors and busting car windows.

"Your car is not a safe. It's not somewhere you can keep expensive items overnight," said terry.

Terry said you should not leave a spare key in your car or leave your vehicle running. He said many people think just because they will be gone for a moment nothing will happen. Don't take that chance.

Muscle Shoals police say if you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood, contact authorities.
