Over the past few days, there have been multiple car burglaries and car thefts in Lakewood.
In most of the incidents, the vehicles were left unlocked, making it an easy target for thieves.
“Residents should make an effort to remind themselves to always remove valuables from their vehicles, lock doors, and never leave key fobs inside,” Police Chief Greg Meyer told TLS. “Leaving these items inside your vehicle is candy for thieves.”
Chief Meyer also reminds residents to report to call police immediately for suspicious activity they may witness at a neighbor’s home.
“It’s impossible for police to be everywhere all the time, so participation from the community is important to keep the town safe, and apprehend those responsible for crimes committed.”
