SHOREWOOD -- Vehicle thefts and break-ins over the weekend prompted Shorewood police on Monday, July 31st to remind residents to keep their valuables locked up, and keep spare keys out of vehicles. In some cases, simply locking their vehicles could've kept people from becoming victims.
Police said this isn't the largest rash of break-ins and thefts they've seen, but they're encouraging everyone to practice common sense, and lock their doors.
"About a month ago I had my car parked on the street. I unfortunately left it unlocked that night," a Shorewood resident said.
The 27-year-old woman said she was targeted by criminals. "When I looked in the back seat, I realized all my stuff was gone," she said.
