Two More Unlocked Vehicles Are Target of Thieves

Both vehicles were in Shepherd Hills; loose change, prescription medication taken from one, state police say.

Two more unlocked vehicles were victimized by thieves in Lower Macungie recently, this time in the Shepherd Hills development.

A state police fax says someone entered an unlocked vehicle parked on the 1100 block of Eagle Street on Friday (Jan. 17) and escaped with $5 in loose change and a bottle of prescription medication valued at about $40.

The theft occurred between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. The victim was a 47-year-old man.

Earlier in the month, meanwhile, an unlocked vehicle was entered on the 5600 block of Greens Drive and unspecified items were taken. The victim was a 26-year-old woman.

The theft occurred between 9:30 p.m. Jan. 8, a Wednesday, and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 9.

State police at Fogelsville ask anyone with information to call them at 610-395-1438.

DUMB DUMB. Now I am sure that we owners of cars know that thieves can easily break into them to steal whatever, however to leave car doors unlocked, well that comes under stupidity. I believe these people should put an advertisement paper on the windshield stating, "my car is unlocked take what you want". Probably once the police come to write up the reported theft, after they leave can't help laughing.
