"It's the holiday season," said Police Chief Eastham. "Lock your cars."
According to the report Eastman gave to the South Bend City Council meeting on Wednesday, November 13, the reports of car prowling go up starting just before Thanksgiving and continue through to Christmas.
"Don't leave anything valuable in them," he said. "Reports of car prowlers are picking up. We haven't had anything important stolen yet. Just a little cash and change, but if you have something worth money in your car and you do not lock it, it's your fault, plain and simple."
2019 marks the fourth year of the Derik Nissell Toy Drive. Beginning in November each year, the toy drive gives people a chance to help out local children who all need a brand new toy to unwrap for Christmas.
The toy drive was set up to honor South Bend High School Alumni Derik S. Nissell. On February 29, 2016 his premature death shocked the community. He was only in his mid-twenties. While working for the Westport Shipyard, Nissell would donate toys to the shipyard's toy drive. The Derik Nissell Toy Drive continues with this tradition.
"So we're collecting toys for underprivileged children in North Pacific County in our area," said Nissell's mother, Joyce Kidd. "We are hoping people will participate. It is a great cause. We collect a lot of toys."
The toy drive will be collecting toys until Friday, December 13.
