Vandalia Police Chief Larry Eason reported late last week that his officers had been handling an unusually high number of reports related to the theft of items from vehicles.
And he noted that there was one fairly common thread in those thefts the thieves had been provided easy pickings.
Eason seemed frustrated about that, the fact that some local residents continue to leave their property unsecured. In a number of cases, the thieves had only to open vehicle doors to get to their treasures.
