The Linton Police Department is warning residents to keep their vehicles locked at night due to a string of break-ins.
"The latest ones were on the west side of town, northwest and southwest. It seemed to be isolated in the last string, but there were some on the east side prior," Linton Police Chief Troy Jerrell said.
The thefts have included wallets, guns, change, CDs and GPS units, among other items.
"Anything they can get a hold of fairly easy," Jerrell noted.
The chief said the best defense against the string of thefts is to keep vehicles locked during the night.
"So far we haven't taken any reports where the vehicles have been locked," Jerrell stressed.
One of the suspects has been taken into custody, although the name will not be released due to being a minor.
"We found one subject, and he is a juvenile. He had broken into several cars, but there are still some out there doing the same thing," Jerrell said.
These suspects will be facing theft charges.
Jerrell said if anyone has information they are encouraged to contact the LPD at 847-4411 or the Crimestoppers tip line at 847-5463.
Crimestoppers will offer a reward for information leading to an arrest or charges against the suspects.
