Over the weekend in Superior, there were several reports of cars being entered and rummaged through.
The thieves weren’t breaking windows to get in because the cars were unlocked, according to Deputy Chief Matt Markon with the Superior Police Department. Miscellaneous items were taken from a number of the cars including loose change, cell phones and accessories, cameras and lighters.
One adult was arrested late Friday night in East End.
On Sunday night, three juveniles were taken into custody in North End and had numerous items in their possession that had been taken from unlocked cars from North 29th Street to North End. The juveniles admitted to opening more than 30 vehicles looking for things.
“I’d like to remind everyone to keep items that might become the target of a theft out of sight when they are in your car, or take those items out of the car overnight,” Markon said in an email. “It’s also important to lock your car doors.”
The Sunday night thieves, he said, bypassed locked cars.
“Don’t let your car or the items in it become tempting targets for thieves,” Markon said.
