Suspects going ‘car to car’ breaking into vehicles.


HART – The Hart Police Department is urging residents to keep their cars and homes locked in response to a rash of vehicle break-ins.

“The Hart Police Department wants to remind residents to lock their vehicle doors and homes due to several vehicle larcenies over the past week,” states a post on the HPD Facebook page.

“Theft reports of suspects stealing items from unlocked vehicles are primarily being reported. These larcenies are occurring specifically in business parking lot areas.

“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.

“The Hart Police Department strongly encourages people not to leave anything of value in their vehicle, including firearms.

“The Hart Police Department encourages residents to be aware of their surroundings when parking in business parking lots, and report any 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.”
