Police investigate string of vehicle break-ins in Bluefield area

BLUEFIELD — Law enforcement officials are reminding residents to keep their vehicles locked following a string of vehicle break-ins in Mercer County.

Lt. D.M. Dillow with the Bluefield Police Department said items have been stolen from numerous vehicles across the city in the past few weeks, including six vehicle thefts throughout the day Tuesday. Dillow said a large majority of the thefts were from vehicles left unlocked.

“The best advice we have is to lock your vehicle,” Dillow said. “Take anything of value out of your vehicle and keep it locked. If there is nothing of value in the car, it will not be a target. Leaving your wallet in the glove compartment, your pocketbook in the console or your laptop sitting in the car is too tempting for some people.”
