The Palmyra Police Department is warning residents to keep their car and house doors locked while the Marion County Fair is underway.

Police Chief Eddie Bogue said with all the extra visitors in town for the fair, it's important to take extra precautions to protect your property.  

"Criminals seize the opportunity that you leave for them a lot of the time," Bogue said. "If you have your doors locked it's just an extra precaution because a person is most likely to break into your home, or get inside your home and steal your valuables if they are unsecured."

Bogue said it's a good idea to always lock your doors at all times, not just when the fair is underway.
