Thefts & burglaries, Nov. 17-21. (click on image to enlarge)
Forty-some thefts and burglaries occurred from Nov. 17-21 in North Platte, as a rash of thefts continued to confound law enforcement. Most of the thefts are from unlocked cars, Police Spokesman Rodney Brown said Wednesday, although burglaries (break-ins and thefts) were all too common.
Five daylight thefts were reported in one block Wednesday, in the 2400 block of West Fifth. Two thefts were around 7:30 a.m. and three more occurred between 1:30-3:30 p.m.
A sample of the burglaries:
• Wednesday, 100 No. Buffalo Bill Ave. 11:03 a.m.
• Thursday, 2600 Pawnee Ave. 9:20 a.m. (also, there was a theft the day before in the same block at 8:57 a.m.)
• Thursday, 2000 West Second, 3:44 p.m.
• Wednesday, 100 N. Elder, 7:07 a.m.
Police encourage residents to make sure all valuables are removed from vehicles and the vehicles are locked when not in use.
If you see suspicious persons or activity, call the police non-emergency line 308-535-6789.
