|Unlocked cars in Fort Thomas were rifled through once again over the past week, but thieves were overlooking some valuables in search of keys. FTM file.|
Break-ins italicized in the lede of this article because despite the warnings by police, media coverage and sheer number of families that have been victimized, thieves are still preying on cars that are unlocked in Fort Thomas.
"It's a real problem," said Detective Adam Noe. "It's one that we really can't prevent. Our residents are being preyed upon and we can't stress it enough: don't allow yourself to be a victim. It's as simple as locking your doors."
Noe said this time thieves hit in clusters on Pentland and Sweetbriar Avenues, before making their way back into the Summit Avenue subdivision in Fort Thomas. Within the last week to ten days, he estimated that around 20 people had reported that their cars were rummaged through.
