Car break-ins tend to be more frequent toward the end of the year in Wichita.

The last two months of 2016 saw an 8 percent increase in the frequency of car break-ins compared to the rest of the year, according to data provided by the Wichita Police Department. Previous years also saw a rise.

Lt. Chris McAuliffe with the Wichita Police Department says car owners can best avoid break-ins by not making their cars a target of opportunity.

About 30 volunteers spent Tuesday night preparing the gymnasium in Wichita's Robert D. Love Downtown YMCA to give away hundreds of coats to those in need. 

The volunteers sifted through coats and winter gear starting at 6 p.m on Tuesday. Joyce Dixson estimated they would be finished by 8 p.m. She said it's a large improvement compared to when she first volunteered nearly two decades ago.

"We went until 10 o'clock," Dixson said. "And that's because we didn't know what we were doing. And it was just by trial and error."
