Vacation Frustrations Thwarted by Security Guard

When on vacation or just out of town for a long weekend, having your car broken into or stolen can quickly turn precious time off into a nightmare. Time that could have been spent dining or enjoying a ball game is spent filling out police reports and repairing damage to your car.

An alert hotel security guard saved visitors from that vacation nightmare in Overland Park late last month. Around 9:30 pm on September 30, our department received a call reporting a person looking into cars in an area hotel parking lot.

Officers responded and after a short investigation, one person was arrested for attempted auto theft and trespassing. No loss or damage to vehicles has been reported at this time.

As a reminder, keep your vehicles locked and items of value out of view to minimize your chances of becoming a victim.
