Lexington Police, say historically when warm weather comes out, crime goes up, but they say there are certain rules to follow to prevent being a victim.

School's out for the summer and so is the warm weather.

"More people are out," says Lt. Ron Compton, the public information officer for Lexington Police.

Police say crimes more likely associated with the warm weather are theft and burglary. They say the crime rate tends to go up in April through October.

Police say people need to remember to close their garage doors during the day and keep valuables out of sight in their cars.
