Police Urge Residents to Lock Vehicles After Rash of Thefts

The Easton Police Department is urging residents to make sure to lock their cars after a rash of thefts from motor vehicles parked in the city's South Side neighborhood.

Police say the thefts appear to have occurred during late night and early morning hours in at least 10 locations, including:
  • On April 16, the 400 block of West Berwick Street , the 200 block of Lachenour Avenue, 300 block of West Grant Street, the 700 block of West Grant Street, the 800 block of West Lincoln Street, the 100 block of Ann Street
  • On April 18, the 800 block of West Grant Street and the 600 block of Davis Street.
  • On April 19, the 1000 block of West Berwick Street and the 300 block of West Grant Street

Police did not specify the items that were reportedly stolen or their value.

"Thus far it appears all of the vehicles were left unlocked. Therefore, the Easton police department would like to offer a friendly reminder for everyone to lock your vehicles. Additionally, we’d like to add that if valuables are stored out of view and vehicles are locked there is a very good chance your vehicle will not be targeted by thieves," the department said in a media release. "Lastly, we ask for the public to keep watch for suspicious persons around your neighborhood and to call police if anyone appears to be acting suspiciously. Hopefully by working together we can reduce future crimes like these. "

Anyone with information about these thefts is asked to call city detectives at 610-250-6635. If you see a crime in progress, call 911.
