Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioIf you live in West Bountiful and you hear a knock at the door in the middle of the night, it may just be the cops. They're doing more of that lately...

Open garage doors and unlocked cars are easy targets for thieves at night. So PD in West Bountiful is going old-school western.

"We're gonna cut it off at the pass," says Police Chief Randy Lloyd. He says officers will knock on doors and wake people up just to tell them to secure their property.

"Quite honestly we've had lots of cakes and cookies that have shown up here with thank you cards," Lloyd adds.

Some residents wouldn't mind the wake-up. "It would make it easier for someone to come in and take everything you have in just one second, so I like the idea," says resident Bessie Thiros. Resident Marty Horsley adds, "I'd be grateful." Police say thefts are up so there's reason to do this.
