PREVENT VEHICLE BURGLARIES AND STOLEN AUTOS

LOCK IT OR LOSE IT

December 24, 2017

Sugar Grove Police Department is currently responding to several vehicle burglaries that took place overnight. In the majority of cases, the vehicle doors were left unlocked.  In two incidences, offender(s) broke the rear side windows to steal items of value that were visible inside the car.   Also, two motor vehicles were stolen from different residences where keys and a garage door opener were left in unlocked cars depicted below:

Taken from the 400 block of Courtney Circle was a 2010 Chevy Traverse.   (This vehicle, with keys inside, has since been recovered.)

Taken from the 700 block of Wild Ginger was a red 2011 Lexus LX750 parked inside the attached garage.   A vehicle on the driveway was left unsecured and the offender(s) found the garage door opener to unlawfully gain access to the garage.  They stole the 2011 Lexus using the keys believed to be inside the vehicle. The stolen SUV is still at large.

Officers are currently taking reports in the 700 block of Ridgeview, 100 block of Cobler Court and 1800 block of Hunters Ridge.

Sugar Grove Police are reminding residents and their guests to lock their vehicles and secure their keys to help prevent crimes of opportunity and not to encourage criminal activity in our community. As always, it is advised to not leave value able items in plain sight.

These are on-going investigations with the Sugar Grove Police Department and ask the public to please contact the department should you witness or have any security footage that may pertain to these instances
