Several neighbors have been extremely helpful in providing home security video to the department during the investigation. We are asking anyone with home security video to review Sunday morning, February 21,2021 from 3:30 AM to 5:00 AM for anything suspicious.

We also ask that you lock your car doors at night, as well as remove your keys from the car. This will absolutely prevent these types of thefts.
