Lock It or Lose It - Lock your Car Doors

The Frankfort Police Department again wants to make residents aware that the Lincoln-Way area, including Frankfort, has been experiencing several break-ins to vehicles recently. These have been occurring during the overnight hours with the offenders looking for unlocked cars. It appears that a vehicle will drop off several people who will go out and look for unlocked vehicles, grab items out of them, then quickly leave the area. None of the incidents have involved any confrontations with people and all have been property crimes only with items being stolen. We continue to actively work with our officers and area agencies to apprehend those responsible. The easiest way to avoid being a victim of these incidents is to lock your doors. Also remember remove valuables from plain view, or take them in the house when possible, and please never leave your keys or key fobs in your car. We also ask that if you see anything out of the ordinary or hear anything, such as a car door shutting or dog barking at an unusual time, call Frankfort Police Department immediately at 911 (emergency) or 815-485-2500 (non-emergency). Working with the community is the best way for you to help us to stop crime! Remember “Lock it or Lose it!!”
