Car Break-In: potential key fob issue
I walked out of my home around 7:50 am and noticed the front windows of my car were missing. That was odd because one I always lock my car and two it was 25 degrees. At first I thought it was a break in. But as I approached I realized there was no broken glass. That’s when I understood that somehow my car had been unlocked and my windows rolled down. Nothing was removed because I had really nothing of value in my car except for my EZ pass. Is this a new kind of crime? If so to what extent?-relieved but disturbed on 25th and O.
Broken Windows from Last Weekend
While the first story involved someone’s windows being rolled down others woke up this weekend to windows that had been broken. In the Church Hill Neighborhood group on December 8th one neighbor reported:
Lots of windows smashed on 20th, Marshall, and Cedar. Cops are all over the place taking reports. Yes, it was locked. No, nothing of value is ever in the car. “
This also was reported yesterday by neighbor Jamie,
A whole block of cars on Marshall street by the new apartment building (near 2000 block) had their passenger window smashed.
Please remember to report these incidents to the police. To file a police report, please call the Richmond Police non-emergency number at 646-5100 and press option 1 or visit your local precinct.
