“There were three incidents of larceny from vehicles,” Chief Kazyak told the city council. “Somebody got into some vehicles and took some items out. I would remind people to please lock their car doors. This is a safe community but we can keep it safer if you just lock the doors. They’re not breaking into cars anymore. They’re just sort of lifting handles. And that’s what happened on two of the three of these cases. So we’d asked everyone to continue to just lock their car doors.”
