Police warn of current crime trend: thefts from residential garages left open or unlocked

January 15, 2015, Canton, MI – The Canton Police Department is putting residents on notice of a current crime trend occurring in the community. Over the past two months, there have been continual reports of thefts from open or unlocked residential garages. Items such as snow blowers, leaf blowers, power tools, power washers, generators, and tires have been taken. The thefts are occurring throughout the day: morning, afternoon and evening.

Police officers in marked and unmarked vehicles are patrolling residential neighborhoods, and in some high activity areas, notifying residents to close their garage doors.

“Thieves are using the open and unlocked garages as an opportunity to steal basically anything of worth they can walk away with,” says Special Services Lieutenant Craig Wilsher. “The best way to avoid becoming a victim is to close and lock your garage and side utility doors,” Wilsher adds.

Residents who observe suspicious activity in their neighborhoods are asked to contact the Canton Police Department at 734/394-5400.
