The Mandan Police Department is reminding residents to lock their vehicles and remove valuable items in light of a series of vehicle thefts in the area.

Authorities note there have been a number of thefts from vehicles, some that were left unlocked, that include handguns, among other stolen items.

“Most thefts from vehicles are crimes of opportunity,” the department reports in a news release. “Thieves will target an area and go from vehicle to vehicle, checking for ones that are unlocked.
