Police report that some residents become offended when they are asked to lock their cars. Support police efforts to reduce the increase of stolen cars. Police are asking residents to PLEASE LOCK YOUR CARS. They do not have the resources to patrol all neighborhoods against car theft. There have been 56 cars reported stolen to date! We have a serious problem with juveniles stealing cars....we can help by not leaving cars running, keys left in ignition and unoccupied. This increasing joy seeking trend by young juveniles is growing dangerously close to someone being critically injured or killed.
