SANFORD, Fla. – How many times have you heard the age-old police catch phrase “lock it or lose it”?
The phrase was coined to help you remember to lock your car doors and take your valuables so your car doesn’t get burglarized, but for many people, it has become white noise.
Sanford Police Capt. Trekelle Perkins said people have heard the saying so many times, they ignore it.
“What we were doing, just trying to remind individuals to secure their vehicles, wasn’t working,” Perkins said.
