You better watch out. Santa's backup is coming to town.
During the holiday season, Issaquah police officers increase patrols in Issaquah's business districts to prevent thefts during the year's busiest shopping days. Think of them as Santa's backup.
Officers also warn shoppers if vehicles and valuables are left too susceptible to prowlers and other Scrooges.
Help prevent a Grinch from ruining your holiday good cheer:
- Lock your vehicle every time you leave, even for a short time.
- Don't leave valuable items in plain view.
- Don't leave your vehicle running unattended.
- If you place items in the trunk, do it discreetly or before you arrive at your destination.
- To prevent package thefts, require a signature for deliveries or leave specific instructions. If a package is stolen, file a police report and contact the shipper immediately.
- If you see somebody acting suspicious or looking into vehicles, call police at 425-837-3200.
