Over the past month the Delaware State Police has investigated thefts from unsecured vehicles at over a dozen locations located in central and eastern Kent County.
State Police learned that an undetermined number of suspects entered more than a dozen vehicles stealing items and also rummaging through unsecured vehicles. The suspects stole items ranging from car audio equipment, GPS systems, and money. No damage was done to the vehicles because they were left unsecured. In most of these cases the vehicles were parked in the victim's driveways.
The Delaware State Police urge people to utilize the following tips:
Lock your car doors and roll up you windows
Do not leave valuables inside your vehicle
Leave outdoor lights on in the driveway or have security lighting installed
Report any suspicious activity to 911
If anyone has any information on these incidents, they are asked to contact Troop 3 at 697-4454 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Information may also be provided via the Internet at www.tipsubmit.com
