The Grand Junction Police Department has received several reports of valuables stolen from cars in the vicinity of Stocker Stadium during sporting events. You are encouraged to take extra precautions the next time you take in a game.

Don't make the mistake of thinking your valuables will be safe simply because you locked your car doors. In some instances, crooks have gone so far as to break out the windows.

In the event, you don't want to pack your valuables with you to the game, give consideration to locking them in the trunk. In any event, don't leave valuables such as wallets and electronics in plain sight.
