Crime Alert: "Jugging"

Be Alert When You Leave the Bank

Post Date:01/19/2017

Headed to the bank? Always be aware of your surroundings! We are investigating a series of vehicle burglaries involving victims who were followed and their cars broken into after cashing checks or withdrawing money at the bank. It's a crime trend across the state known as "jugging".  The term comes likely from the fact that bank bags are commonly referred to as "jugs".

Watch for:
-Suspicious, occupied vehicles at your bank
-Vehicles with dark tinted windows
-And obviously, vehicles that follow you from the bank

Do/Don't:
-Don't leave bank with your cash envelope in plain view
-Don't leave your cash in your car while you run another errand
-Do take a different or very visible route home from the bank
