FAIRFIELD - Fairfield police are warning residents to stay extra vigilant while shopping this time of year.

Lt. James Perez, of the Fairfield Police Department, says many residents don't realize how easily they make themselves vulnerable targets for thieves.

Police are advising that residents walk in well-lit areas while carrying gifts and bags. They also suggest making sure to lock car doors and leaving packages in the trunk, instead of the backseat.
