It is being reported from neighboring communities that the juvenile crews who are traveling the area and conducting the majority of vehicle burglaries have now been entering residences through unlocked doors and windows in order to locate vehicle keys that might be placed near a home entryway on the lower levels of a residence.As the weather moderates and windows are left open during the day, we recommend closing and locking all doors and windows overnight on the lower levels.
While Lemont has not yet experience this type of criminal activity, we want to ensure that residents are taking all appropriate cautions to safeguard their property.
