Once again, our Officers and Deputies from the Lorain County Sheriff's Office responded to calls for individual(s) attempting to enter homes in the Grafton area. The latest attempt happened in the early morning hours of 4/5/2017. Over the past 2 weeks residents in the Township's surrounding Grafton have reported similar crimes. These incidents are not isolated to any one area and all Grafton residents and surrounding residents should ensure their homes and vehicles are locked and secure. Do not leave any valuables in your vehicles. It is known that on at least two of these incidents the suspect(s) used a bicycle as their mode of transportation, which allows him/her to travel silently, off of roadways, and through fields and yards without being noticed. Anyone with information should contact the Grafton Police Department at 440-926-2662. Anyone who sees suspicious activity are encouraged to call while the activities are occurring. One of the best methods of protecting your property at night is exterior lighting. All residents should illuminate the exterior of your homes to help deter criminal activity.
