After two suspects were arrested earlier this week in connection with larcenies from unlocked cars in the Falkirk subdivision, police say another string of larcenies occurred overnight between Wednesday and Thursday.
This time, the larcenies were from unlocked cars in the Fox River subdivision.
Everette Robbins, director of public safety, stressed to residents Thursday that they need to keep their cars locked at night, especially with the change in weather.
“I realize that we live in a great community and should be able to leave our doors unlocked. Unfortunately, that is not the world we live in and we must take precautions to prevent their behavior. Crimes like these are crimes of opportunity, let’s not give them the opportunity,” Robbins said.
“As many of you know, we had several larceny from motor vehicles this past week in the Falkirk Subdivision. We made two arrests who are currently still incarcerated. This morning, we had multiple larcenies from vehicles in the Fox River subdivision. All of the vehicles in both subdivisions were left unlocked.”
During the larcenies that occurred in the township earlier this week, a resident had a Ring camera system installed on their property which caught a thief on video trying to enter a car parked in a driveway.
“It is the time of year in which the weather is getting better and thieves feel more comfortable lurking around at night. By no means am I placing blame on residents for being victimized, but we can all do more to deter their behavior. The fault is placed squarely on the thieves that target our hard working families.” Robbins said.
