Cars hit in Marengo

From the Marengo (Ill.) Police Department (MPD):

"Two burglaries on Bauman Court during the night / early morning hours of May 27th – 28th. One was a vehicle and one was a garage and the vehicle in the garage. The garage and the vehicles were unlocked.

"Items taken included electronics, tools, change. No serial numbers were recorded by the owners which gives MPD little to follow up with. Please remind the group to take the time to document serial numbers of any / all items of value, engrave owner identification descriptors on items and list these items with insurance agents. The follow up for MPD (e.g.) running them through various data bases to see if they were pawned is invaluable when we have specific description including serial numbers."

You know how, in a small town, you think you don't have to lock your car? or close and lock your garage door?

On the one hand, if you lose some change and don't have to spend $300 on a new window for your car, maybe your loss is less. But why not just put the barkless German shepherd in the car and give the car burglars a real surprise? !!!

If you see kids (or adults) prowling the streets late at night, call the police. If you see vehicles stopped in or cruising a neighborhood at unusual times, call the police.
