Police advice for preventing car break-ins

North Little Rock, Ark.  (KTHV) -- You get home from a long day at work, jump out of the car and rush into the house to relax. But what are you forgetting? Did you lock your car?

A string of car break-ins in North Little Rock are all mostly due to one simple error: not locking your door.

People are losing their cell phones, navigation systems, and even guns to car break-ins. North Little Rock police say they've seen a 60 percent increase in car-break-ins because people are not locking their doors and leaving valuables in plain sight. Sgt. Brian Dedrick says it's important to make break-ins as difficult as possible by taking a few steps.

While it's easier to leave things in your car, putting them in the trunk or bringing things inside is always the smarter option.

Today's Box Office: Cloud Atlas, what's it about anyway?

If you'll recall, last week, I had intentions of reviewing Cloud Atlas but my plans fell through. The result was a vague preview of the film. This week I was able to deliver on my promise.

Last night when I was leaving to see Cloud Atlas, my wife asked me what it was about. My response was that I didn't know and with a puzzled look on her face, she said "Why are you going to see a movie that you don't know anything about?"

Puppy Up! walk in North Little Rock

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (2 Million Dogs) - On November 3rd, North Little Rock will host one of approximately 40 Puppy Up! Walks to take place this year across the country.

A Place to Call Home: Keith

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 is partnered with the Arkansas Department of Human Services, profiling some of these children up for adoption.

This week, a young boy is in need of a place to call home.

The first thing we noticed when we met 10-year old Keith -- this kid is bright. Of course, he's a typical boy. He loves basketball, loves video games, and especially loves Chuck E. Cheese, where he was treated to tokens, tickets and treats.

But he's also a 4th grader who loves art and makes A's and B's, quite an accomplishment considering his troubled past.

He's shy, apparent when I begin to ask him questions.

"(Dawn) Well what does a home mean to you? What would that mean, to live in a home? (Keith shrugs) I don't know. (Dawn) Is it hard being up for adoption? (Keith nods) yea."
