Protecting Your Valuables at UT's Home Games

Knoxville (WVLT) - Rowdy fans are not the only thing Knoxville Police will be watching out for at Saturdays UT'S football game.

Crime is also at the top of the list.

Police say that at the last home game there were about half a dozen reports of cars getting broken into and valuables being stolen.

Knoxville Police Captain Gordan Catlit says people can get so caught up in the excitement of the day that they forget the potential of being victimized, "What we'd like to remind people is that if your bringing valuables that are accompanying you to the game then we would recommend that you put these valuables definitely out of sight and preferably in the trunk of your car before you actually arrive at your parking destination."

Captain Catlit says at this weekend's game, they plan on having several patrols and will be as visible as possible during the game.
