From Sgt. Ross of Decatur Police.
Decatur Police are investigating reports of seven vehicles entered overnight on the Garland Avenue, McClean Street and Brower Street. On 2-10-14 at approximately 7:00 am, a resident on a morning walk located a wallet in the roadway and observed several car doors ajar and called police. Officers canvassed the neighborhood and located seven vehicles that appeared to have been entered. All but one of the vehicles were parked in driveways. All of the vehicles were unsecured. A GPS unit and the recovered wallet were the only things stolen.
It is not uncommon for there to be a rash of entered vehicles during inclement weather, which we are currently preparing for in Decatur. Please remove all valuables from your vehicles. Please look out and check on vehicles in the area if you hear something in the middle of the night. Call police immediately if you see anyone going from vehicle to vehicle.
