In this past week’s police log, nearly a dozen burglaries/thefts were listed. Many were thefts of items from unlocked cars and police are advising residents to remove valuables from vehicles and lock their cars as well as their homes. Anyone who sees anything or anyone suspicious have been asked to call police immediately.
