If you rent a storage unit in Palm Beach County, check your stuff.

Since February, public storage facilities throughout the county have been burglarized a few hundred times, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office
 
The unknown suspect’s motive is to rob facilities with indoor units between midnight and 5 a.m., the sheriff’s office said.
PBSO said people should choose a public storage facility with working cameras. Also, don’t leave valuables. The sheriff’s office suggested buying a round lock, which has no locking mechanism, to prevent the lock from being cut.
  
The suspects recently robbed an indoor storage facility on the 4200 block of Okeechobee Blvd., in West Palm Beach.
