Shoppers look for bargains, cops look for trouble

Posted: Updated:

MIRA MESA (CBS 8) - The shopping frenzy is alive at San Diego malls and stores and has been in full swing since Thursday night.

Even as Friday came to an end, local shoppers still found bargains. But while consumers searched for deals, police searched for thieves.

The sheriff's department's Holiday Watch Program is now in place. Friday, deputies set up at a mall parking lot in Mira Mesa to get the word out about holiday crime prevention.

It didn't take them long to find some open invitations for crooks, including open car windows and packages and purses in plain sight. Deputies advise to hide those items if you leave them in your vehicle.

Holiday Watch Operations also include the Eye in the Sky Tower and increased patrols.

To increase public awareness about protecting your property, crime prevention specialists and senior volunteer patrol members will be handing out flyers at various locations.

Deputies will also work with county probation and state parole to identify career criminals and repeat offenders who may be in violation of their probation or parole conditions.
