Auburn Chief of Police Martin D. McCoy is asking that citizens of the community take extra time, effort and precautions as it relates to their vehicles. Remove valuables from your vehicle, park close to your home or in a well-lit area, set your alarm system if available. Most importantly, he says, lock your vehicle. There have been several recent incidents of items stolen from cars, but only unlocked vehicles were targets. It is believed that a locked vehicle would deter many of these crimes.
The APD is investigating 14 theft-from-vehicle incidents that are believed to have occurred late night on Oct. 8 or early morning on Oct. 9. All incidents occurred in the North East and South East areas of the City of Auburn.
Many of the vehicles had nothing missing but others had items taken, including, cash, computer, GPS, a two-way radio, clothing, and hair products. In all of the incidents, the vehicles that were entered were unlocked.
Police are asking for help in solving these crimes and ask anyone having information to call the APD at 260-920-3200.
