The Mankato Department of Public Safety is kicking off “Operation Grinch” to help reduce retail theft and burglaries. They are asking the public to help police put the Grinch behind bars and ensure a positive holiday shopping experience. They say in order to stay safe you should be focused and alert of your surroundings, shop during daylight hours, don’t leave purses unattended in shopping carts, avoid carrying large amounts of cash, keep credit cards secure in your wallet, and keep your shopping bags out of sight in your vehicle and lock the doors. They also advise to call 911 if you see anything suspicious.
