Police are reporting an increase in car burglaries over the last month in Chico.

Specifically, parking lots in upper Bidwell Park, off the Esplanade and East Avenue have been targeted. Bidwell Park is hit often because hikers tend to leave valuables in their cars, Chico Police Sgt. Mike Rodden told Action News Now Friday.

Police say more than a dozen cars were burglarized in broad daylight on April 9 and 10.

With the increase in burglaries police are reminding people not to leave valuables in their cars.
