PENTWATER — Just one day after the Hart Police Department issued a statement about a recent rash of thefts from vehicles, the Pentwater Police Department issued a similar statement.

“Over the course of the last few days, Pentwater police have taken several reports of unlocked vehicles being entered and items stolen from them,” states a post on the department’s Facebook page. “We are continuing our investigation at this time.

“In the interim, we want to encourage all village residents to exercise good security procedures around their homes. Make sure to lock vehicles at night. Don’t leave expensive items in plain sight inside your vehicle. Phones, loose change, food items, tools, etc. should be stored safely inside your home or garage.

“Report all suspicious activity by calling 911. Unusual activity in your area should be suspect. People walking at strange times at night; vehicles parked for long periods with their lights off; and subjects seen carrying large items. When possible, try to get complete vehicle descriptions, including license plate numbers, and then phone 911. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.”

Shelby Police Chief Terry TenBrink said there has not been a recent rash of thefts from vehicles in the village. However, it’s possible that residents may not be reporting thefts to police, or there could be thefts occurring outside the village limits.
