Recent rash of thefts in Mac
May 17, 2013 | 1 Comment
In many of the cases, the property was in plain sight. In others, it was easily accessible in yards or open garages.
The thefts appear to be occurring primarily in the afternoon and evenings, often while someone is home.
According to investigations, the suspect or suspects are driving a dark-colored pickup and using snatch and run tactics. They may be casing residential areas in advance for property left unattended.
Police urge residents to keep property in locations not easily accessible, and to be vigilant about suspicious people and vehicles. They ask that any suspicious incidents be reported to the police department at 503-434-7307 or dispatch center at 503-434-6500.
