The police chief says thefts like the ones listed below are "unfortunately" common.
"These thefts from motor vehicles are unfortunately not uncommon and they usually occur in clusters," said Police Chief Louis Dirker. "People often leave their cars unlocked and they invite thefts by leaving articles in plain sight inside the vehicles. Citizens should lock their vehicles, even in their driveways, and place articles in the trunk of the car if they want to leave them in the vehicle." "Thefts from vehicles are common and, in this case, [they are] likely related," said Lt. Anne Stirm. "When we address this at our monthly community neighborhood watch meetings, we always tell attendees that it is very important to 'harden the target.' In other words, windows up, doors locked and valuables removed."
