Peoria PD hold press conference on recent burglaries

PEORIA, IL - Peoria Police are focusing on a week's worth of car burglaries.

During a press conference today investigators highlighted the way thieves are getting into the vehicles by simply opening an unlocked door.

"Juveniles have found a way to go out and entertain themselves and they are going out and committing the acts as entertainment to themselves." Say Captain Loren Marion III of the Peoria Police Department.

Some advice from police is to keep your car locked, don't leave items in plain view, don't leave spare keys in your car, and park in well-lit areas.
