WADSWORTH, OH (WOIO) - The Wadsworth Police Department issued an alert to residents today.

Officers say with better weather comes a better chance for vehicle thefts. So, police are working to spread the word about some basic tips to prevent crimes of opportunity:

  • Lock any vehicles when left unattended
  • Do not store valuable items in vehicles
  • If property is left in vehicles, do not leave it visible  
  • Park in a well-lit area.

Common items stolen include GPS units, cell phones, other electronic devices, wallets, purses and loose change.

Police are hoping the public will be their "eyes and ears" and report any suspicious activity by calling (330) 334-1511.
