[ARCHIVED] Police Remind Residents To Lock Their Car Doors
The Geneva Police Department is asking residents to lock their vehicles after responding to 11 reports of car burglaries since Oct. 23.
The burglaries have taken place overnight primarily on the City’s east side, but similar incidents also have been reported in the Allendale subdivision near Western Avenue. Valuables were reported taken from the burglarized vehicles, all of which were unlocked.
Geneva Police believe these incidents are crimes of opportunity and can be reduced with help from the community. Police are encouraging residents to lock their car doors, remove all valuables from their vehicle if possible, park in well-lit areas and consider installing motion triggered outside lighting. People who witness or hear suspicious activity in their neighborhood should call 911 immediately.
