Police are warning that with the increase in temperature, there is also an increase in jewelry robberies.
Stockton Police report a recent increase in gold chain robberies; where suspects are getting close enough to victims to rip the chains off their necks.
Officers recommend everyone be aware of their surroundings, especially in warm weather when more people are outside. They also suggest walking in groups and avoid being distracted by cell phones.
Also, take photos of your valuables; including jewelry, electronics, and cell phones. Having detailed photos and product serial numbers helps investigators if something is stolen.
