Local residents warned to lock car doors
Baldwin City police continue to investigate a string of car burglaries where apparently youngsters are getting in unlocked vehicles and taking mostly cash.
Police Chief Mike McKenna said the thieves struck again Monday night in the Silver Leaf Lane area, the latest of 11 reports since March.
“I would ask people if they see people out at night walking that look suspicious to please call us,” said McKenna. “And please lock your cars so it’s not accessible for people to steal whatever they can.”
