(KMOV.com) - New signs are being posted in Brentwood to warn residents of crime after several recent car break-ins.
Signs are being posted in yards that read “Lock doors. Turn on Lights. Thieves walking streets.” Several Brentwood residents say crime is rare in the city and has been for years.
“In the neighborhood, everyone knows each other, it has been like that for decades,” said resident Kim Brennan.
Residents said they heard about several car break-ins at a recent block party. Brentwood police said the vehicles were broken into around Labor Day. However, police said that type of crime is not on the rise.
The Brentwood Chief of Police said residents should remove valuables from parked cars and keep doors locked.
