LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Police are asking the community to diligently lock their car doors after a rash of car thefts. Fifty cars have been stolen in just five days.

According to police, the majority of the thefts were done by “unknown means”, which means the owner was unable to tell police how the car was stolen or there were no signs of forced entry.

Last week, police first asked the community to lock their car doors to prevent gun thefts, saying many guns used in violent crimes were stolen from vehicles.

Police are asking the Louisville community to lock their car doors by 9 p.m. every night to help stop the thefts.
