“Bank Jugging” is a popular crime targeting victims at banks and retail stores. Criminals will follow victims to parking lots and then steal their money and valuables. Val parking lots are popular targets for this type of crime. Be sure to take precautions.
Reminders for EVERYONE:
When banking, be aware of your surroundings and people inside & outside the bank.
Hide your cash before walking out of the bank. Don’t flaunt a money bag or envelope.
Be on the lookout for anyone you believe might be following you.
Try to go directly to your final destination with no extra stops.
If you HAVE to make a stop for another errand, DO NOT leave cash anywhere in your vehicle.
If you see something suspicious or if something doesn’t feel right, don’t hesitate to call 911
