MPD Keeping Close Eye on Busy Shopping Areas

MIDLAND - Midland Police are out in full force making sure your holiday shopping goes smoothly.

Thefts rise during the holidays so MPD has its Mobile Substation out in the busy areas around the mall, Kohl's, Best Buy and at both Wal-Marts.

They will be patrolling through Christmas eve. Police urge you to use caution in these last few hectic days before Christmas. They say always try to walk with someone and hide your packages inside vehicles.
