---- — Due to recent vehicle burglaries, Shelbyville Police Chief David Tallman advises residents to make sure their cars are locked and valuables removed from the vehicles.

“They seem to be taking women’s purses from unlocked cars. Do not leave purses unattended in your car for even five minutes,” Tallman said.

He noted that when wallets are stolen, it opens a person up to identity theft, which is very difficult to resolve.
