Township suffers 30 car break ins

FAIRFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The Fairfield Township Police Department is alerting residences to a number of cars being broken into throughout the township.

Over 30 car beak ins occurred over the past two weeks.

Three weeks ago, two juveniles on bicycles were arrested and charged with thefts from vehicles and the stolen property was recovered.

Police warn that leaving your items in plain sight is an open invitation to criminals.

Police say criminals often times will break into vehicles when something inside suggests there might be things of value inside.

Some examples would be car chargers for electronic devices, backpacks, and briefcases.

Some criminals even look for the mark of a suction cup on the windshield indicating that the vehicle may have the GPS unit inside.

Also, remember to record the serial number of your valuables and keep them in a safe place.  Engraving the item in a non conspicuous place is another measure to help identity items that may be recovered.
