Last updated on Monday, July 13, 2009

(MUNCIE) - A Ball State University professor says we should not be surprised to see a spike in crime during summer.

Criminal justice professor Jerry McKean cites FBI crime statistics, where more crimes are reported in July and August, the hottest months of the year.

McKean also points out that Americans are more active in summer and stay out longer at parks, movie theaters and other entertainment venues.
