Attn: Borough residents,
It is, again, that time of the year for criminals to be out and about lurking in the dark stealing from vehicles. Last night there was another "rash" of theft from vehicles. It appears it may not have just been the Borough that was hit, so if you have relatives in neighboring areas please pass along the information to them.
Again, a reminder to you all to keep your vehicles locked at all times you are not in them or in direct eye sight. The criminals are committing crimes of opportunity. With you leaving your vehicle unlocked it is presenting them with the opportunity to easily gain access inside. Please, if possible, bring all valuable items with you inside at night. This includes phones, tablets, GPS, laptops, guns, ect.
A good habit to get into that can help the Police if you become a victim of theft is to record serial numbers for anything you find valuable to "YOU." People have different opinions on what is important to them. If all else fails record serial numbers for everything you own. This allows the Police to enter the items into a National database. If another Dept. locates an item they can run the serial number and know it was stolen from our Borough.
As always please report any suspicious activity to us!
Thank you and be safe!!
