GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)- A warning from Police not to let your holiday gifts become someone else's five finger discount.

Police say during the holidays theft increases drastically.

Within the last year, there have been more than150 car break–ins reported and 92% of those were cars that were left unlocked.

Some things to remember when getting out of your car are to lock your doors, put your purse and shopping bags in the trunk, and don't leave anything of value in plain sight.

Police say if you see anything suspicious in parking lots or find that your car has been broken in to call 911 so they can investigate immediately.
