Police: unlocked doors, keys in car made recent crimes easy

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Police on New Orleans' west bank say drivers there need to remember to take their keys and lock the car doors.

A news release Monday says seven vehicle burglaries have been reported since Oct. 11, and all seven were unlocked.

It says five other cars were stolen, and the keys were in four of them. Two had spare keys in the glove compartment, and two had keys in the ignition.

Police say one woman had left her car parked, unlocked and running while she went into a friend's apartment. They say a man had left keys in the ignition of his unlocked vehicle while he went into his apartment to get some shoes.
