A crime pattern continues to occur on the North Shore. Last night, in Kenilworth, 3 unlocked vehicles parked in resident's driveways were entered. Two vehicles were in the 500 block of Brier St. and one in the 700 block of Kent Rd. Nothing was taken from the vehicles. Vehicles located in neighboring communities were also burglarized overnight. These incidents are occurring primarily, during the overnight hours. Communities in the extended area have all had vehicles stolen and burglarized as a result of these opportunists looking for unlocked vehicles.
The Police Department believes the individuals responsible are youthful offenders with street gang affiliation. These subjects should be considered armed and dangerous. 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. We need your help to eliminate crimes of opportunity and to call 911 if you see any suspicious behavior.
