Police investigate auto burglaries


Staff Reports

According to Altus Police Chief Tim Murphy, Altus police are investigating multiple reports of auto burglaries that took place sometime overnight Monday and early Tuesday morning.

There was no damage reported from any of the burglaries and police believe the suspect(s) are targeting unlocked vehicles that are parked in residential driveways.

Police are reminding and encouraging everyone to lock your car doors, even while parked in your driveway. Victims have reported small amounts of coin and other misc items being taken.

“Auto burglaries are often a crime of opportunity and thieves see an unlocked vehicle as an easy target,” Murphy said. “Police are encouraging citizens to lock your car doors. Never leave money or other valuables in your car or in plain view.”

Police are asking anyone with information about the auto burglaries to contact the Altus Police Department at (580) 482-4121 or you can call the Altus/Jackson county crime stoppers at 580 482-tips (8477). You can remain anonymous and you could be eligible for a cash reward.
