Ketchum Police are advising residents to lock their cars following several vehicle burglaries, the most recent in broad daylight in downtown Ketchum.

The theft was reported at 11:48 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 15. The victimized vehicle, a 2005 GMC Envoy SUV, was unlocked and running and parked on Leadville Avenue in front of Giacobbi Square.

Police spokeswoman Kim Rogers said an expensive purse, an expensive wallet and an iPOD were stolen.

Ketchum police do not know if the theft is related to several other recent vehicle burglaries in the Wood River Valley.

It was the third vehicle burglary reported in Ketchum this month. Two other vehicles, also left unlocked, were burglarized near the Ketchum Post Office a few weeks ago.

"This has heightened our alert, and citizens should be more alert as well and remember to lock their cars," Rogers said.
