Car burglaries over the past week have Bettendorf Police reminding people to lock their doors.

Officers say they have received several reports earlier in the week about cars being stolen in northern Bettendorf. There have also been reports of cars stolen in LeClaire. Police say in each circumstance, all the cars were left unlocked. In some cases, car thieves took the cars from open garages.

Police remind you to use common sense to make it harder for criminals.
