Police advise customers to watch belongings while shopping

Undercover Norwalk police officers went to the Stop and Shop on Connecticut Avenue today to remind customers to protect their belongings while shopping.



"Keep an Eye on Your Purse" stickers were left on those unwatched items by the officers in an attempt to keep shoppers alert. 



"The biggest problem is when it's unsecured, unwatched and unattended, right on top," Sgt. Sofia Gulino says. "It only takes seconds for a person to come and take it away." 



Police advise people to hold onto their handbags while shopping, or to use the seatbelt on the cart.
