Burnet County law enforcement have responded to several burglaries and vehicles burglaries over the past several weeks. The holiday season is one of the most popular times for theft, so police recommend people take steps to help prevent nefarious activities.
One of the easiest things to do is simply lock your home or vehicle doors. Also, take any valuables from your vehicle inside your home or business with you. If you can’t, then place the valuables inside the trunk or other secure part of your vehicle.
