A crime pattern where offenders are looking for unlocked vehicles to burglarize or steal continues to occur on the North Shore. During the early morning hours between 1:30 a.m and 8:30 a.m., an unlocked vehicle with keys left inside was stolen from the 500 block of Essex Rd. Multiple vehicle thefts and vehicle burglaries occurred during the same time frame in multiple neighboring North Shore communities. Offenders are attracted to the North Shore because crimes of opportunity exist in safe areas. We need your help to eliminate crimes of opportunity and to call 911 if you see any suspicious behavior. These simple measures may help deter a criminal from targeting you!
VEHICLE SECURITY TIPS:
- Always lock your vehicles.
- Remove the keys and garage door opener - even when parked in your driveway.
- Never leave valuable property within your vehicle.
