(KNSI) - With ice fishing season in full swing deputies are warning anglers about potential thefts.

The Benton County Sheriff's Office says when your done fishing, take all valuables with you and secure your shelter as best you can.

It's also a good idea to record the serial numbers on expensive fishing gear like ice augers and electronics.

Always report suspicious activity such as vehicles or people moving from fish house to fish house.

The sheriff's office says so far, this season they haven't had any reports of fish house burglaries, but every year there are reports.

In the past, most thefts have taken place on Little Rock and Mayhew Lake.
