July 24, 2013 – Criminals are always looking for an easy target, and leaving a vehicle unlocked with valuables inside, is just that. The Dane County Sheriff’s Office wants to alert citizens to a recent rash of thefts from vehicles in the northeast part of the county.
On Tuesday, July 23, a deputy working in the town of Burke took four calls in one morning. Over the past two weeks, several thefts from vehicles were reported in the town of Bristol. In each incident, the thieves entered the vehicle through an unlocked door and took small electronics and cash.
Even though these crimes took place in northeast Dane County, a reminder to lock vehicles and keep valuables out of sight is something everyone can benefit from. Don’t be an easy target for thieves, lock your doors and most likely they’ll move on to the person that didn’t.
