Village residents told to lock cars due to thefts


CANTON — Keep your car doors locked if you live in the village of Canton.

That’s the warning being given by village police Thursday after a series of thefts resulted in numerous calls to the department.

Whether in the driveway or in the street, over the past two weeks police have received approximately a dozen calls from village residents that items are being stolen from their unlocked vehicles.

“It’s ranged throughout the village,” Patrolman Kevin J. Mousaw said. “We’ve made our night patrols aware so that they can be keeping a watch for suspects.”

Cash, credit cards, GPS units and other personal items have been reported stolen, and Patrolman Mousaw said still more cars have been entered and rummaged through, though nothing was reported stolen. “It seems like they are picking different parts of the village throughout the evening and residents are finding the entries in the morning hours,” he said.

Police have no suspects in the robberies.

They are asking that people who may have had items stolen contact the department in hopes that a suspect or suspects can be found by comparing the cases. Also, it would be of importance should any property be recovered in the future.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department at 386-4561.
