Police report influx of car burglaries in and around Lombard

Police Car Break In 240

The Lombard Police Department has received reports of an influx of unlocked cars being burglarized in Lombard and surrounding communities.

These recent reports include suspects seeking out unlocked vehicles that are parked in public areas, streets, and residential driveways. To help minimize your risk of being involved, police are reminding residents to never leave valuable items in your car, to close all windows and lock all doors before leaving your vehicle, and to never leave keys or engine starting devices (FOB’s) or garage door openers in your vehicles. Additional safety tips include:

  • Park in well-lit, heavily populated areas.
  • Trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, find another place to park.
  • Avoid parking next to occupied vehicles.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Make a copy of your registration and insurance, and keep them in your wallet or purse. Then remove all forms of identification from your vehicle. Anyone with permission to drive your vehicle should also have a copy of the registration and insurance with them to furnish to the police if necessary.
  • If you see any suspicious activity or individuals, please call 9-1-1 immediately when you feel safe to.
  • Don’t assume that your dark tinted windows will hide your valuables. Thieves often use flashlights to see through tint.

Please contact Lt. Cyndy Velazquez for more information at (630)620-4485.
