Summer theft advisory

Summer theft advisory

As summer continues to bring hot and muggy conditions in the daytime in Central Illinois, thieves are busy engaging in a crime of opportunity in the overnight hours. While decent people who work for what they own are sleeping, and the cars they purchased through that hard work are parked in their driveways, the few who lack the common sense to know right from wrong are busy stealing from parked cars. Springfield Police have taken numerous reports at Southside and Westside neighborhoods of items being stolen in these burglaries to vehicles. A majority of the vehicles which were burglarized were left unlocked with property inside which was then stolen. Avoid being victimized, never leave anything of any value in a car overnight.
