Fort Collins has a bevy of lovely parks in our city limits, but you may want to be careful leaving your cars in the designated spots while you enjoy the scenery: local thieves are targeting parked cars in these areas.

In a press release from the City of Fort Collins, it was noted that "30 break-ins have occurred in park and natural area parking lots". (City of Fort Collins) The thieves usually enter these cars by breaking door locks and windows, taking personal valuables like bags, wallets, and more.

The Fort Collins Police urges you to report any break-in activity in your vehicle, even if nothing has been stolen. Photos of recent perpetrators can be found here.

Stay safe, Fort Collins!
