Stolen Vehicles in Texarkana are Being Used for ATM Thefts
The Texarkana Arkansas Police is spreading the word to our community about recently stolen vehicles and what they are being used for.
Recently Ford and Chevrolet half-ton trucks have been targeted at local hotels and apartment complexes. Once these types of vehicles are stolen, they have been used to target ATMs without the anti-theft crossbar attachments. There have been cases where a truck was stolen from our city and later used in another town to target an ATM.
The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department wants to remind everyone how important it is to not leave your keys in your vehicle or just leaving your vehicle unlocked. If your vehicle is unlocked, criminals can have access quickly. They can steal items from the inside, or it can lead to your vehicle being stolen. So, it's really vital that you lock your vehicle at all times even if it's for a short duration. By taking the time to do, this will help in lowering vehicle thefts in our area.
