What is Jugging: The term is used to describe suspects who sit in bank parking lots and watch customers go in and out of a bank. The suspects follow the customers they believe are in possession of cash and look for an opportunity to burglarize their vehicles or rob them directly.
HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOURSELF?
Always be aware of your surroundings
Be aware of anyone following you from the area of a bank
Conceal money before leaving the bank. Never openly carry bank bags, envelopes or coin boxes.
Do not leave or try to hide your bank bag or envelope in your vehicle when you exit at your next destination, even if it’s your residence.
Note: If you suspect you are being targeted, call 911 from your cell phone and keep the dispatcher informed of your location, the direction you are traveling, and drive toward the Sheriff’s Office or Police station until marked police cars are able to locate you.
