Map: Locations of Vehicle Break-Ins in Ross Township

There were dozen in November alone, and in some cases, police said the vehicles were unlocked.

Ross Township Police investigated 12 vehicle break-in cases in November. In at least two of the cases, the vehicles were unlocked, according to police reports.

"The vast majority of theft from vehicle reports we get involve unlocked cars," said Det. Brian Kohlhepp. "We can't stress enough to always lock your car, no matter where you are parked, even at home."

Sounds the the majority of the break-ins are on LOCKED cars, according to the report listed here. Does Ross need more officers?. This township has seen to many criminals lately.

In some instances, the police report is not specific about whether the vehicles was locked or not. That's why I spoke to Detective Kohlhepp, who is quoted in the story.

Ross Twp. Police should consider using some bait cars kept under surveillance (and preferably with hidden cam in their interior). That should be pretty straightforward to do at the mall, probably not as practical at the other locations indicated.
