Madison Area Crime Stoppers would like to remind you to lock cars, homes, garages, and to not leave vehicles unattended while running. On January 11th an unlocked SUV, with a garage door opener inside, was parked in the driveway of a Manchester Road home Saturday morning. The door from the attached garage into the house was also unlocked. When family members awoke, the SUV was gone as were several wallets that had been inside the home.

The stolen SUV was located Saturday night in a Brittany Place parking lot. Last month, 56 vehicles were reported stolen. Of that number, 54 had keys in them, or had keys easily accessible to criminals. 29 of the 56 vehicles stolen were unlocked and running at the time they were taken.
