GLENCOE – It should come as no surprise that there is a car burglary trend on the North Shore, given the number of news articles and social media posts about all of the cars that have been stolen this summer. But residents continue to leave keys in unlocked vehicles on their driveways, and the vehicles keep getting stolen.
It happened again in Glencoe on August 24: an unidentified person drove off with an Infiniti that had been left unlocked with the keys inside on the 100 block of Lapier Street.
The day before, someone stole the registration sticker from a vehicle on the 700 block of Greenwood Avenue. Also on August 24, burglars stole an undetermined amount of U.S. cash from an unlocked vehicle parked in a driveway on the 200 block of Scott Avenue. And two vehicles left unlocked on a driveway on the 100 block of Dell Place and a vehicle on the 400 block of Sheridan Road were ransacked, though nothing appears to have been stolen.
