Crime doesn't take a holiday and this Thanksgiving, Danbury Police are reminding Black Friday shoppers to be aware of their surroundings. Spokesman Lt Christian Carroccio says drivers should keep their parked cars locked, and to not be distracted by a cell phone while walking in parking lots.
Officials are also reminding people to keep an eye on credit card statements following big shopping trips to make sure there are no fraudulent charges.
Carroccio says people should be out in groups late at night and early in the morning and keep an eye on personal belongings. Police are asking that people report all suspicious persons, vehicles and activity to the Danbury Police Department at 203-797-4611 or by calling 911 when appropriate.
