WATER VALLEY – In a familiar summer pattern, Water Valley Police Chief Jason Mangrum reported that there were multiple reports of attempted vehicle burglaries Sunday night.
“We had reports on Central Street and Main Street,” Mangrum told the Herald. “It appears that the owners did not have valuables stored inside the vehicles and the person or persons kept checking vehicles.”
Mangrum reminded residents that keeping vehicle locked and removing valuables, especially overnight, is a strong deterrence for vehicle burglaries. He also encouraged people in the city to always report suspicious activity if it appears someone may have entered their vehicle, even if nothing was taken.
“Chances are there have been some other cases in the city that weren’t reported if the owner didn’t notice anything missing. Please report it, even if it happened two weeks ago. Your information could help our investigation as we work to make sure there isn’t a pattern,” the chief explained.
To contact the police department for non-emergency, you can call the dispatch at (662) 473-2933 or by emailing Mangrum at email@example.com. For emergencies dial 911.
