Charlottesville Police Investigating Multiple Car Larcenies in Neighborhoods


Feb. 5, 2014

Officials say that over the past 10 days, the Charlottesville Police Department has investigated more than 14 cases of car larcenies throughout various neighborhoods.

Larcenies have been reported in the Fry Springs area, Lewis Mountain and Locust-Grove neighborhoods.

Authorities say most of the cars were left unlocked at the time. Common items stolen include electronic devices, money and coins left in the console area of the cars.

Some unlocked cars were ransacked and pilfered through looking for valuables, although nothing was found missing.

Police suggest these tips:

- Lock your vehicle.
- Leave your exterior house lights on, if you don’t have motion detector lights.
- Remove your valuables from the car.
- Never leave anything of value in your car in plain sight.
- If you see or hear anything suspicious in your neighborhood, call the police to investigate.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (434) 977-4000.
