Crime doesn’t stop on Black Friday! Don’t let thieves turn you into a Black Friday victim – here are some safety tips from the Johnson County Sheriff's Office to keep in mind as you hit the stores.
- Don’t flash the cash or the plastic. Consider using alternate options to pay for your merchandise other than cash and if you’re paying with plastic – be aware of your surroundings. A thief can easily look over your shoulder to gather account information.
- Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet inside a coat or front pants pocket.
- Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle and always remain alert.
- Hide your finds! Don’t store purchases in plain sight and always lock your vehicle.
