Ontario Police are ready for another round of Black Friday and Christmas shopping crowds. More officers will be out patrolling, including two keeping an eye on shopping center parking lots in what Police Chief Rodney Smith calls "holiday cars". Drivers and pedestrians are urged to watch for each other in parking lots, so someone doesn't get hit by a car. And on the congested streets, buckle-up and take your time. Chief Smith reminds Christmas shoppers not to leave packages in plain view in your car. Put them in the trunk, but beware of thieves watching you, because they are known for breaking into trunks. He says your best bet is to take your packages home, then come back to Ontario for more shopping.
