A crime pattern continues to occur on the North Shore. Several unlocked vehicles with the keys left inside were stolen last night on the North Shore. Dozens of unlocked vehicles have been entered and items stolen from them. Garage door openers left in unlocked cars are being used to gain entry into homes to commit burglaries. These incidents are occurring primarily, during the overnight hours, while the family is asleep.
The Police Department believes the individuals responsible are youthful offenders with street gang affiliation. These subjects should be considered armed and dangerous. The Kenilworth Police Department is collaborating with Law Enforcement agencies throughout the area to work together to identify, arrest and disrupt these offenders. We encourage all residents to lock your vehicle doors and remove keys and valuables. These incidents confirm that offenders are attracted to the North Shore area because these opportunities exist. This crime pattern is moving closer to Kenilworth’s borders and we need your help to eliminate crimes of opportunity and to call 911 if you see any suspicious behavior.
