Another recent string of car thefts along with crimes like having vehicles and homes broken into could be an example of the pros and cons of living a more rural lifestyle. Miller County Sheriff Louie Gregoire says even when you don’t live close to someone, you can’t take safety for granted anymore.
While some enjoying living further away from others for a sense of privacy and freedom, that also means you give up the safety net of having witnesses to help watch your property.
In the meantime, like or not, Sheriff Gregoire says you should make it as hard as possible for a thief. Always keep you home and vehicle locked, remove valuables from your car, and take your keys with you.
