It seems monotonous . . . except to the latest victims.
Seemingly each week, police release reports of new vehicle break-ins in Lower Macungie Township.
It would be unfair to expect troopers to be everywhere at one, so their main message has been this: At least lock your vehicle doors to give yourself a reasonable chance to deter theft and keep your items yours. While some thefts from motor vehicles in the township have involved forced entry, the majority of the reports have specified that vehicles were unlocked when entered by thieves.
Such was the case in the four latest reports, according to police.
Several unspecified items were removed from the vehicle of Kristi Curtis of Wind Gap as she was parked at 5382 Princeton Road between April 16 and 20, police said. No value was given on the items.
A second break-in was reported overnight April 19 by Nicholas Radzicki at 5539 Spring Ridge Drive W., police said. Several items were taken, with no detail or value provided by police.
Another theft from a motor vehicle took place between 6 p.m. April 19 and 7:15 a.m. April 20. An unidentified 36-year-old female told police that several items were stolen from her unlocked vehicle in the 5200 block of Dartmouth Drive, police said. No value of the loss was provided.
The final incident occurred between 1 and 7 a.m. April 20. Pete and Bernice Tobash of 2154 Grandy Court reported several items taken from their vehicle, police said. Again, the items and value were not provided by police.
