Citizens urged to lock up their vehicles / April 20, 2009
South Boston Police Department Chief James W. Binner would like to remind citizens the importance of securing their vehicles when they leave them unattended. Binner said “with the weather warming up you tend to have more people walking during the day and night which have led to these thefts.”

According to Capt. B. K. Lovelace, the department has taken sixteen reports of theft and two reports of vandalism to vehicles since April 1, 2009. The thefts from vehicles have ranged from loose change, money, music CD, GPS systems, and a firearm stolen from unlocked vehicles. “The thefts have occurred in various locations in the Town.” Lovelace stated.

Lovelace also wants to remind parents of the Town Curfew.

The Town Code states “It shall be unlawful for any minor under the age of 18 years to loiter, idle, wander, stroll or play in or upon public grounds, public places and public buildings, places of amusement and entertainment, vacant lots or other unsupervised places between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.”
