An emergency roadside kit had been taken from the vehicle’s trunk. The vehicle’s driver door had been left unlocked inside the garage.
•On Friday, June 21, at 3 a.m., a resident on the 3700 Block of Ruette De Ville heard his garage door open and close. The homeowner checked on his garage and did not notice anything. He secured all doors to his home and noticed one of his vehicles’ parked outside had the cover removed and the hood propped open. Officers responded, checked the area and the car, but nothing was taken from the garage or car. The plastic covers were removed from the car battery and the center console had been ransacked. The homeowner’s other vehicle parked on the street had cash stolen from the center console. The doors of that vehicle had been left unsecured.
“This is a good reminder that there are suspects looking for things to take from vehicles. Please remember to not leave anything in your vehicle. Take out the garage door openers from your vehicles at night. Lock the doors and secure the windows. Try to park in the garage or on the driveway, and make sure the area in front of your home is well lit.”
