Burglaries to Vehicles
December 05, 2012

Crime Stoppers would like help with the following crimes committed in Winfield during the months of October and November.  Over the last couple of months several burglaries to vehicles have been reported in several areas of the city.  These areas include 1600-2000 Block of Loomis, 1000 Block of Manning, 1600-1700 Block of Millington, 1400 Block of Fuller, 100 Block of E. 16th, 200 Block of E. 17th, 1900-2000 block of Main, and the 2200 Block of Pike Road.   Although these burglaries have been reported in different places the method of entry to these vehicles are similar.  It is believed the perpetrators are using some type of tool to “punch” open the locking mechanisms of the vehicles to gain entry.  Upon entry several items including electronic devices, money and other assorted items have been taken.

The Winfield Police Department encourages everyone to lock and secure their vehicles at night.  They also ask, if possible to secure valuable items inside the residence if possible.  Any knowledge or information about these burglaries can be relayed to the Winfield Police Department at 620-221-5555, or Crime Stoppers at 620-221-7777, or visit the Crime Stoppers Website at www.accs.crimestoppersweb.com.
