Oxford Daily Crime Report: Friday – Sunday, Nov. 21-23

As thanksgiving break began this weekend for the Ole Miss students the city’s police began its “Lockout Crime Campaign.” This weekend the officers conducted 150 extra patrols and foot patrols. Reportedly this is the time of year when burglaries pick up.
The Oxford police dept. has made burglary prevention a priority. It will continue the extra patrols as well as foot patrols. The police ask that if you see anyone or anything suspicious in your area to please give them a call. Also, if you have any information regarding burglaries or other crimes to please call CrimeStoppers at 662-234-TIPS–names are not needed, just your information. CrimeStoppers pays cash to people with information.
The Oxford police says thank you and they hope everyone has a great thanksgiving holiday.
