Stolen vehicles, thefts from cars on the rise again

For more than two years, many communities in the Greater Danbury area and across the state have experienced sustained activity of thefts from vehicles and stolen cars.  A successful Lock It or Lose It campaign by the Wilton Police Department in late 2018 resulted in a 55-percent reduction in reported thefts from vehicles during 2019 and a 59-percent reduction in reported vehicles stolen last year.  

But some of that vigilance has been lost. This year there have been 5 reported stolen vehicles compared to 0 at the same time last year.  There have been 15 reported theft from vehicle incidents compared to 8 at the same time last year. 

Wilton Police are reminding residents to lock unoccupied vehicles because those left unsecured are an invitation to thieves to keep coming back.
