Lock your car doors, Susanville Police Department says there have been a string of opportunistic car thefts in the uptown area.

Message from Susanville Police Department:
The police department needs your help to prevent crime. This week, several vehicles in the North- Uptown Susanville area were broken into resulting in numerous stolen items. The common theme: these vehicles were left unlocked, the ignition fob/keys were left inside, and valuables were left in plain view.
It’s important to understand this rash of thefts are not a fluke or coincidence, they are crimes of opportunity. By not securing your vehicles and belongings, criminals will continue to victimize people in our community. To deter further auto thefts, I implore you to secure your vehicles and remove your personal belongings.
