Omaha police warn about uptick in thefts from vehicles at gyms, fitness centers

With a shift toward wintry weather, exercisers are having to adjust.

That means leaving outdoor workouts behind in favor of gyms and fitness centers. But Omaha police are warning that thieves are prepped for that change, too.

Police said they’ve seen an uptick in theft of valuables from fitness centers and indoor recreation facilities. They expect to see more of that as cold weather takes hold.

Officer Joe Nickerson gave the following tips for gymgoers:

» Don’t leave valuables in your vehicle.

» If your gym has lockers, take your valuables inside and lock them up.

» Bring the bare minimum to the gym, if possible, like a license and cash or a debit card.

» Keep anything in the car out of sight, even laundry bags or lunchboxes.

» Lock your vehicle and keep your keys with you.
