After a spate of break-ins overnight, on Wednesday, June 19, the Yellow Springs Police Department urged villagers to lock their vehicles.
Residents began calling the YSPD this morning after noticing their unlocked vehicles had been entered sometime in the night, according to YS Police Chief Brian Carlson.
The YSPD had received 10 reports of theft from vehicles on Wednesday afternoon, but anticipate more as residents begin to use their vehicles, Carlson reported. Similar reports are coming from surrounding communities, he added.
“Please remove valuables from vehicles, lock the doors and always keep the porch light on,” Carlson wrote in a message.
