Burglars Preying on Unlocked Cars in Fort Thomas

Canon Ridge, off of Alexandria Pike near 471, exit 2, was recently apart of a burglary spree. FTM file. 
It should be a simple fix, according to Fort Thomas Police Lt. Rich Whitford.

But in spite of that burglars have stolen items from over 35 different cars on eight different streets in Fort Thomas over the last four nights.

All the cars were unlocked.

"We're requesting our residents to lock their vehicles at night," said Whitford. "Please try not to leave any valuables in the vehicle. It's a simple action that can prevent a lot of the crime we're seeing right now."

Whitford said detectives are working on the case and that most of the streets involved are on the southside of town.


The Campbell County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that Highland Heights, Southgate and Newport had also reported thefts from cars recently.

In all cases, the cars had been left unlocked, the sheriff's office said.

Cold Spring police shared Campbell County's Facebook post, noting that "At around 4 a.m. this morning (Thursday), a resident from Sturbridge (subdivision) spotted four subjects in hoodies in the area. The subjects ran when the resident yelled. They entered a nearby black passenger car and fled the area."
