Havre de Grace police are asking citizens to lock their car doors following a string of thefts from vehicles earlier this week.
Cell phones, iPods, bank cards and loose change left in vehicles were stolen from 15 cars left unlocked in Havre de Grace neighborhoods between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning, according to Julie Morgan, spokeswoman for the Havre de Grace Police Department.
All of the vehicles—which were parked on Tidewater Drive, Heather Way, Cedarcroft, Bayland Drive, Spinnaker Way, Hall Court, Juniata Drive and Alliance Street—were unlocked, Morgan said. Officials are investigating the incidents, according to Morgan.
“Make sure you lock your vehicles,” Teresa Walter, chief of the Havre de Grace Police Department, told citizens at Monday's City Council meeting. "It's a matter of opportunity for [criminals], so if they see it there, they are going to take the opportunity if they can."
