Bicycle Taken from Unlocked Garage Overnight Unlocked car entered nearby, also
This morning (Friday, September 27, 2019), a resident in the middle block of Grafton Street discovered that his $700 bicycle had been stolen from his unlocked detached garage overnight.
Also during the same time frame as the bicycle theft, a resident of the 5600 block of Kirkside Drive awoke to find that his unlocked car had been entered. Nothing was stolen from the car.
The Village Police Department urges residents to keep their garages, sheds, and cars locked to prevent theft. Additionally, police are now recommending that residents install outdoor security cameras to capture suspicious activity around their home. Video evidence has proven helpful in identifying and prosecuting thieves, and the cost of such cameras is very reasonable.
