Big shopping days can be a prime time for thieves to strike, and not just those looking to steal your identity.  If you plan to take advantage of late night or early morning shopping this holiday weekend, Danbury Police are reminding you not to carry so may bags that you become an easy target for someone who may want to assault or rob you.  Police stress keeping parked vehicles locked and removing all valuables because several area towns have reported an increase in thefts from unlocked motor vehicles in recent months.  Area police departments are urging people to use caution and to be aware of surroundings while shopping.
