Locals told to lock vehicles

Wapakoneta residents are being advised to keep their vehicles locked.

Wapakoneta Police Chief Russ Hunlock said summer months are a prime time for thieves to strike and warned city residents to not make their vehicles easy targets.

“In the summer months, more people are out roaming around and more thefts from vehicles occur,” Hunlock said. “People who steal are looking for easy targets and unlocked vehicles.”
