Sheriff Warns of High Volume of Break Ins

Cass County Sheriff Richard J. Behnke advises public to lock homes and vehicles from potential theft. From December 25 to January 15 there have been 20 burglaries and 23 larcenies reported to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office. There has been a particular spike in this activity in the past three days. It is believed there are more incidents that have yet to be reported to law enforcement. Most of these crimes are occurring in an area, but not limited to, Cassopolis and to the Southeast.

Suspects are usually breaking into unlocked cars and garages to get property from vehicles and buildings. Suspects are also breaking into unoccupied homes to get items of value as well.

The best practice is to secure your homes and vehicles as best as possible. Make information available to neighbors, or friends, that you trust when leaving your home for an extended period of time. If you find yourself an unfortunate victim of crime be sure to report the incident to law enforcement as soon as possible.

If you have any information on these, or any other, crime please call the Cass County Tip Line 800-462-9328. Or through our website at You may also text 274637 or call Crimestoppers 800-342-STOP, (7267)
