Crime prevention – lock those garages and sheds


Spring is here, and it is the season of yard work and barbeques. Unfortunately, it is also the season of open garage doors, open ground level windows and unlocked doors to your home.

Across Chatham-Kent the Police have received numerous complaints of thieves entering garages through open doors. Tools, alcohol, cash, bank cards and wallets have been taken.

Crime Stoppers reminds you that an open door is an open invitation to a thief to ruin your day. If you are home or in the backyard close your garage doors and when you leave your home close your ground floor windows and lock the doors.

Don’t make this the summer to remember for the wrong reasons.
