CPD noticed an increase of vehicle burglaries to commercial or personal vehicles while deliveries or drop offs are being made to a business.

The vehicle operator goes inside of the business and when they return to the unlocked vehicle they find personal and/or business related items stolen from inside of the vehicle.

Additionally, burglaries to unlocked vehicles continues to be an ongoing problem.
