SHERIFF: HUNTING CAMPS ARE TARGETS FOR THIEVES
PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) – With hunting season winding down, authorities are warning people to remove their valuables from their hunting camps.
Autauga County Sheriff Joe Sedinger said hunting camps are perfect targets for thieves because the camps are in rural areas and are oftentimes abandoned for weeks or months after the end of hunting season.
Sedinger said thieves look for anything of value, but favorite targets are all-terrain vehicles and guns.
Elmore County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Ricky Lowery said all valuables should be removed from the camps at the end of the season.
Spring turkey season closes April 30 in most Central Alabama counties.
