Lock those doors: Mukilteo police are reminding folks in town to keep their cars locked when they are parked.

Of the 67 reported car prowls in Mukilteo so far this year, 32 involved unlocked vehicles, according to the quarterly Block Watch report. That’s nearly half. Valuables, such as purses and GPS units, and garage door openers should not be left visible inside the parked car.

Even cars left in garages should still be locked, according to police.
