WILLIAMSON CO. – Williamson County Sheriff Bennie Vick is reminding residents to be aware of recent thefts within Williamson County and simple steps that can be taken to help deter thefts.
According to a release, the sheriff’s office in the last few weeks has seen an increase in the number of theft reports, including thefts of motor vehicles, all-terrain vehicles (ATV’s, both four wheelers and side-by-sides), and vehicle burglaries, almost all involving unlocked vehicles. The incidents have occurred in all various parts of Williamson County.
Vick said to remove ignition keys from all vehicles, lock vehicle doors and outbuilding doors, and to secure ATV’s in a building if possible.
He added a reminder to write down or photograph Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) or serial numbers of valuable possessions and store them in a safe place so they can be accessed if needed.
