The Chapel Hill Police Department is reminding you to secure valuables in your vehicles after a couple break-ins occurred last weekend.
The manager of the Meadowmont Community Association sent an email to the community saying two vehicle break-ins took place Sunday at the YMCA pool complex in Meadowmont.
Chapel Hill Police Public Information Lieutenant Josh Mecimore confirmed the break-ins occurred sometime between 2:30 and 5:00 p.m. He said a purse was taken from one car and a GPS and wallet were taken from the other. The vehicles were locked, however, all of those items were left in plain sight.
Lt. Mecimore said taking the extra time to put your valuables in the trunk or glove box could reduce the temptation that may be worth the risk to the would-be criminal of breaking a window in the middle of the day.
