State police urge citizens to lock cars during fall hikes

VERMONT — As fall hiking and tourism season is upon us, Vermont State Police are reminding citizens to refrain from leaving valuables in plain view inside their vehicles while enjoying the outdoors. This includes purses, handbags (with vacation cash), wallets, cash, iPhones, iPods, hiking equipment and the like.
Continuing efforts begun earlier this year, troopers in various parts of the state are patrolling towns and state park hiking access points through the fall foliage tourism season, conducting foot patrols in the parking lots, and speaking to citizens in a community policing effort.
Troopers in the New Haven barracks last week reported a break-in at a car parked at a trailhead on the Lincoln Gap.
