Over the weekend, La Grange experienced some uncharacteristic criminal activity with a home and a garage being burglarized. Many unlocked vehicles were also rummaged through on a path that also included our neighboring communities to the north and east.
Burglaries do not occur very often in La Grange, but they are a reality in any urban area. As safe and sound as La Grange is, do not let your guard down, especially when away from home for extended periods of time.
The risk of being burglarized can be greatly reduced by taking simple steps to make your home more difficult to enter and less enticing to would-be burglars. Please be sure to secure your home and your vehicles. DO NOT leave doors and windows open or unlocked. Never leave a message on your answering machine or social media pages telling people that you are away from home.
Call 9-1-1 immediately if you see something that looks suspicious or out of the ordinary. We would rather have you call the police when something seems wrong than to wait until it is too late!
