Meridian police issued a warning to drivers of pickup trucks, to not leave anything in the bed of the truck and to lock your toolbox.
There have been 30-40 burglaries targeting items in the back of pickup trucks over the past several months, according to MPD spokesman Dean Harper.
In a separate case, police ask for help in locating a wanted suspect. Bobby Lewis is wanted on several misdemeanor charges and for questioning in some felony cases.
Harper said Lewis has reportedly flaunted the fact that he is successfully evading police.
Authorities remind you it is a felony to harbor a wanted suspect.
If you have any information on Lewis' whereabouts or the burglaries involving pickup trucks, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at (601) 917-8888 or (601) 485-1860.
