Minivan steering wheel and key locking up Sign In

I have a 99, Chrysler Town & Country, 3.8 V6, 145,000 mi., the steering wheel and key is locking up and is unable to turn the key. It has happened 3-4 times in the last year. Most recently a few days ago I had to call AAA for a tow truck thinking it was going to need to be towed home. After trying a few different things ie: tapping the key, rocking the steering wheel, jacking up the front end to unweight the wheels, the driver and I finally got it unlocked. What has happened,
and what can I do to remedy the situation from recurring?

Probably a bad key and tumbler set. You will likely have to replace the ignition lock.
