Cozad Police Chief Mark Montgomery would like people in the TRIBUNE-Area to be alert and aware that burglaries have been happening in central and southwest Nebraska with mechanic shops and pharmacies being targeted. Montgomery reccomends that businesses keep a light on in your business and be sure to lock up tight. The burglaries have been going on for two months. 
Montgomery is also asking citizens of Cozad to please not feed the cats in downtown Cozad. The cats have become a nuisances as many are diseased and they have been decating on porches, by business doors and in the downtown planters. 
They are currently being trapped using humane live traps and are being relocated on local farms.
