Increase in car burglaries in our area

In the past few weeks there have been several car burglaries in the 6th Ward. Most of the cars were unlocked and contained items of value -- a camera and photo equipment, wireless headset and designer sunglasses. According to Officer Loyce Spells of the Evanston Police Department if you remove all items of value and lock your vehicles during the early evening/overnight hours, you have a low probability of being burglarized.
