With only a few days left until Christmas the stores are full of shoppers looking for that last minute gift. Then there are those watching shoppers make purchases and stuff them into a vehicle and then leave it unattended. That’s when they pounce Grinch-like and ruin someone’s Christmas. Grand Rapids Police Chief Jim Denny has this bit of advice folks really need to pay a little more attention to their shopping habits at this time of year. He said place packages in the trunk when possible, always lock the doors and never leave a vehicle running, if you are careful you can prevent most holiday crimes.
