Car Thefts On The Rise In Branson
The cold temperatures often lead to people leaving their car running while darting into the store but that could lead to theft.
Police Chief Kent Crutcher says there's been an increase and folks need to be sure to lock their doors and hide any gifts or valuables out of sight.
Branson has had nine car thefts since October.
Crutcher says of the nine only one car hasn't been recovered at this time.
