Over the last week of January 13th, NBPD has received several calls from local residents about their vehicles being entered into overnight and their vehicles were ransacked. In some cases items were taken and in others there was nothing taken. It appears all of the vehicles were left unlocked NBPD encourages residents to always secure their vehicles by locking the doors and removing anything of value from sight. Never leave purses or wallets in plain view in a vehicle even if there is nothing in the purses because a criminal does not know that and the criminal will enter that vehicle by any means. If nothing is seen in plain view most likely your vehicle will not be entered. Just those simple measures by the vehicle owners will keep them from becoming a victim of a crime. NBPD encourages all residents to call the police if any suspicious persons are seen within their neighborhoods.
