Lock your doors: Rash of thefts reported

A rash of petty thefts should have some local drivers concerned.

Several reports of theft have come to the Red Wing Police Department since July 6, stating that someone has entered unlocked vehicle and taken valuables or left items in disarray.

Victims can be found throughout town, from downtown to Lower Burnside. Stolen items include cash, keys and cards, to name a few.

Capt. Gordon Rohr speculated it might be kids checking doors, an inevitable consequence of summer.

People are advised to lock their parked vehicles, especially overnight, and keep valuable items out of sight.
