Oakmont police are warning residents to lock their doors after a recent rash of car thefts in the borough.
Early Monday morning, police received reports about items taken from at least a dozen cars, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
The thieves have so far struck unlocked cars between 12th and 15th streets and stole cash, GPS units and other items. No cars were been broken into, the newspaper reports.
“We’re asking people to lock their cars,” Chief Dave DeSanti told the Trib.
Residents also are reminded not to leave valuables within plain view in their cars.
Police told the Trib they believe juveniles could be behind the thefts.
