MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. – Police officers across the valley warn residents to protect your belongings by locking your vehicle. Several residents in Muscle Shoals learned the hard way why that warning is given out.

It’s a single picture, but hopefully, it is good enough to identify this woman.  Muscle Shoals police say she recently made her way through a neighborhood checking for unlocked vehicles. This is a surveillance picture from outside one of the homes.

Investigators say she found several vehicles unlocked and took the contents from inside. It is also believed she is responsible for stealing one of the unlocked cars; it was later located in Sheffield.
