Vehicle Burglaries Increasing


The Thibodaux Police Department is experiencing an increasein the number of complaints involving vehicle burglaries.  These burglaries are occurring both near the business and residentialareas of the City.  In eighty percent (80%) of these burglaries, the vehicles areunlocked and valuables were left visible to passing thieves. 

The Police Department is asking citizens to remember tolock your vehicle at all times when it is not in use.  The majority of these vehicle burglaries or thefts fromvehicle interiors are considered “crimes of opportunity”.  If the vehicles are unlocked or valuables are easily seeninside the vehicle, it doesn’t take a thief but seconds to “smash andgrab” or open an unlocked door to remove these valuables. 

Help Us HelpYou”…Lock your car and truckdoors.  Do not leave valuables inplain view inside your vehicles where potential thieves can see and steal.
