Tis the Season for Theft from Auto

November 16, 2017 7:36 AM

We started a new social media campaign yesterday on trying to prevent theft from auto.

The City of Madison has experienced over 1100 Thefts from Auto so far this year.

There have been 26 guns stolen out of autos this year
There were 41 guns stolen out of cars in 2016
Since 2016 there are now 67 guns in criminal hands that DID NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN
The majority of these cases occurred with unlocked cars

We will be sending out a reminder each night on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to remind people to lock their cars and garages, using the hashtag #NightlyLockup
