FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Several Thefts From Motor Vehicles Have Taken Place During July
In the first six days of July, 17 motor vehicles have been gone through during the late night or early morning hours. Some of the vehicles had items stolen. Virtually all the vehicles were unlocked.
Sheriff White said, “I would like to remind everyone to lock their vehicles when they are not with them. Additionally, I suggest people not leave valuables in their vehicles while unattended.”
Experience dictates that most often these random thefts are by juveniles and young adults. Please be observant in your neighborhoods and simply watch your neighbor’s property as well as your own. As with any other crime, “If you see something, say something.” Cole County Sheriff’s Office 573.634.9160
