Four Unlocked Cars Entered Saturday Night; Nothing Taken
We MUST lock our cars to deny thieves of opportunities

Overnight Saturday-Sunday (June 27-28), unknown persons entered a total of four unlocked cars on E. Irving (between Connecticut and Brookville), W. Irving (between Magnolia and Cedar) and Grove (between Kirkside and the Buffer Zone). Nothing was taken from any of the cars.

Nighttime vehicle theft is the predominant property crime in the Village, and this event (unlocked cars entered by thieves) is the story that we tell repeatedly. Village Police—and your neighbors—need your help to make our community safer: lock your car and remove all valuables whenever you park. Failing to do so provides easy opportunities for thieves, and it encourages them to return.

Preventing crime is a civic duty shared by all of us. Please lock your car.
