ODESSA - The Sandhills Stock Show and Rodeo is back in town.

Riders and rodeo-lovers alike are packing into the Ector County Coliseum, but this year is a little different than last.

A recent rash of break-in's at their parking lot has officials stepping up their security.

During the next few days, the Mounted Patrol will be keeping a close eye on everyone who comes in and out.

The Mounted Patrol plans to constantly scan the parking lot area.

They say if any other burglaries surface, they'll send out even more back-up officers.
