Several sources are once again reporting several vehicles being broken into at local parks

(Hopefully someone will setup a bait car and catch these criminals)

 

If you recall awhile back ago, we covered the story about this same topic that plagued local parks for several months.

The suspects were never caught. And now they are back to breaking into vehicles again.

We received several reports of numerous vehicles being broken into at the local parks recently again

Parks effected: Rock Cut, Sinnissippi, Shorewood, Sportscore, Keiselberg, Atwood, etc…

At one time Rock Cut State Park had a sign posted about locking your doors because of the burglaries.

But once we posted  the story, they removed the sign.

How to prevent your vehicle from being broken into: 

  • LOCK your doors!
  • Do NOT put anything of value in sight.
  • Before going to the park, leave any valuables at home.
  • If you have to bring a purse or any valuables, put it in the trunk BEFORE you go to the park.
  • Invest into a hidden camera and stick it in your vehicle. More info at Superior Spy – CLICK HERE
