They say criminals are targeting vehicles believed to contain such valuables.



And they say they have received reports of several cases of simple larceny involving vehicles that were broken into while parked in business districts across the Corporate Area.



The police are also urging motorists to ensure that vehicles are properly locked upon parking and to install alarms or anti-theft devices where possible.



The police say persons should report any suspicious activities to the police immediately so that lawmen can track the patterns of criminals, and eventually nab them.



In addition, persons are being advised to avoid traveling with large sums of cash and where this is absolutely necessary to take precautionary measures.
