Shoppers are often the targets of thieves especially during the hussle and bustle of the holiday season.
In just a few minutes at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Merrill, our cameras spotted several cars with the doors unlocked and shopping bags sitting right inside.
Police say this is an easy target. They suggest you always lock your doors.
Also, if you have bags in your car you should put them in the trunk or out of sight.
Finally, if both of your hands are full of shopping bags when you're walking to your car, police say that also makes you more vulnerable.
