After numerous reports of breaking and entering, the Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) states that the common element is that residents aren’t locking vehicles. Wallets, cash, cell phones, computers and tablets have been stolen in what Sheriff Rodney Wright calls “crimes of opportunity,” because criminals will only check to see if the vehicle is locked and then move on.
“The first line of defense against crimes such as this is making sure your vehicle is locked every time you leave it alone. Additionally, it is extremely important that you never leave valuables in your car, even in your own driveway. This includes your car keys.”
SCSO detectives are actively working on these cases. If you have information that may lead to an arrest, call 501-303-5608 or on the anonymous crime tip hotline at 501-303-5744.
