Lancaster Urges People To Lock Your Vehicles.
Over the past several days, our officers have taken multiple reports of residents' vehicles being entered, and money or property being stolen, in various neighborhoods in the town. Almost all of these incidents occurred overnight and involved vehicles that had been left unlocked. We also had an incident where an attached garage was entered, apparently using a garage door opener located in a vehicle in the driveway, and various power tools were stolen from the garage. Here are a few tips to avoid this happening to you: - Remember to remove all valuables from your vehicles (preferably) or put them out of sight (in the trunk or a locked compartment). Several of the victims only reported loose change being taken, while others had computers or electronic devices worth hundreds of dollars stolen. - Make sure that your vehicle is locked and the windows are up. - Try to park in a well-lit area.
