HART — The Hart Police Department is reminding residents to lock their vehicles and homes due to several vehicle larcenies over the past several weeks, said Hart Police Chief Juan Salazar.

“Theft reports of suspects stealing items from unlocked vehicles are specifically being reported. These larcenies are occurring specifically in business parking lot areas,” the chief said.

“Suspects are going car to car, checking vehicles to see if they are unlocked. If the vehicle is locked, the suspect passes it by and moves to the next vehicle. If the doors are unlocked, personal property is being stolen.”

“It is strongly encouraged that people not leave anything of value in their vehicle, including firearms,” Salazar said.

“The Hart Police Department encourages residents to be aware of their surroundings when parking in business parking lots, and report suspicious people and vehicles to law enforcement.

“City of Hart residents can report suspicious activity 24 hours a day by calling 911 or contacting Mason/Oceana Central Dispatch at (231) 869-5858. Anyone with information can call the Hart Police Department at (231) 873-2488 or Mason/Oceana Central Dispatch at (231) 869-5858.”
