Recently, several of the villages surrounding Lemont have once again experienced an increase in thefts from unlocked vehicles in the neighborhoods along the Interstate. The thefts are committed by juveniles who travel the interstate system victimizing the communities close to interchanges. While none have occurred in Lemont, we want to increase awareness of the public.
We want to again encourage residents to Lock It or Lose It. Please lock vehicles that are parked outside overnight. Close the garage door. Do not leave keys inside an unattended vehicle. If you observe any individuals who you don't recognize from the neighborhood, please contact the police by dialing 911.
