Anti-crime tip: Bug spray, car alarm

Elderly and alone? Or, just need a couple of good anti-crime tips.

Police Chief Thomas Harris says two of the best are to keep a can of wasp/hornet spray and your electronic vehicle keys by your bed.

“ Those cans of wasp/ hornet can shoot 20 feet,” Harris said. “If someone breaks in, spray them in the eyes. That can give you a chance to call police and get out before harm comes to you.”

“Hit the panic button on your car keys,” Harris said. “The honking and lights coming on, attracting attention, is exactly what an intruder fears. There’s a good chance they will leave.”
