Orleans Police Department Investigating Break-In and Theft of Vehicles

(ORLEANS) – The Orleans Police Department is investigating several break-ins to vehicles.

“We are asking our citizens to lock their vehicles when not in use,’ said Orleans Town Marshal Richard Dixon. “We have had several car entries reported over the past few weeks. The vehicles are not being forcibly entered. The only vehicles entered are unlocked and easy targets for thieves.”

Officers are asking motorists to not leave valuables in their vehicle.

“Do not leave things like weapons, jewelry or electronics or other items of value and don’t leave your keys in your vehicles,” added Marshal Dixon. “We have had two vehicles stolen that had the keys left inside. Please help us protect your vehicles and your valuable property.”

Officers ask if you notice any unusual activity, suspicious individuals,dogs barking or car doors slamming late at night to call 812-865-2222 or the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at 812-723-2417.

“By working together we can eliminate this problem,” Marshal Dixon added.
