"When you are walking from one place to another check your back seat and realize that your door isn`t always just locking right away, you need to actually lock it depending on what type of locking system you have on your car doors. And if you feel a threat or any kind of suspiciousness, don`t even put yourself in that environment to start off with, retreat and maybe back peddle and call the police," said Margie Zietz, Minot PD Crime Prevention.
