Neighborhood Watch Crime Bulletin #49

Thefts from Autos: In only one evening, over 20 parked vehicles in North Ocean Pines were entered and property was taken from inside the UNLOCKED vehicles. This occurred within a two block area. Although the investigation is still ongoing, we have been able to obtain arrest warrants for one of the suspects and recovered some of the stolen property. There are TWO main points to be learned from these thefts: 1) ALL vehicles that were entered were UNLOCKED. Thieves usually BYPASS locked vehicles. Do NOT leave valuables in unlocked cars.
