Police warn residents on rash of vehicle break-ins in Swatara Township
Swatara Township Police are warning residents and visitors to the township and surrounding areas of an increase in vehicle break-ins to cars parked at local businesses, gyms, hotels and motels.
Police ask people to lock your doors when you are away from your vehicle and to not leave items of value in plain sight. Thieves appear to be looking for purses, wallets, and electronics that have been left in your car.
According to police, suspects will not hesitate to open your car or break your window to steal what has been left behind.
Also, if you plan on storing those items in your trunk, put them in your trunk before you arrive at your destination. Police say thieves may be doing surveillance on parking lots and watching people who put items in their trunk.
Swatara Township Police say they do not believe the suspects are a threat to the personal safety of people, but certainly want what is yours.
