Seven Unlocked Cars Entered Wednesday Night
Please lock your car every time you park!
On Thursday (January 25, 2018) morning, several residents reported that someone had entered their unlocked cars overnight. A pair of expensive sunglasses and a credit card was taken from one car, a debit card was taken from another, and nothing was taken from five of the cars.
In one instance, a resident on the east side of the Village reported that she was awakened at 1:00 a.m. by the family dog who was barking aggressively, but she did not investigate further or call the Village Police. It was later learned that a credit card had been stolen from this resident’s car, and investigation revealed that the card had been used three times within 30 minutes after the dog alerted her.
