HIGHLAND — So far this year, there's been 11 thefts from vehicles reported in Highland, and police said none of the thieves forced entry into the vehicles.

The doors were already unlocked, police said.

From Jan. 1 to March 13, police said they have taken 11 reports of stolen valuables from residents' vehicles, according to police.

Police said two adults have been apprehended for one of the thefts so far, in which a handgun, cell phone accessories, a flashlight and change was stolen from someone's car.

Because of the rash of thefts in the community, extra npatrols will be done in Highland's residential areas, police said.

“Thefts from unlocked vehicles are crimes of opportunity,” Highland police said. “We urge you to remove valuables from your vehicles and to never leave anything of value in plain sight. If you can’t take the items inside your residence with you, we suggest that you lock them in the trunk where they are out of sight.”
