Lower Saucon Township Police are reminding township residents and visitors to lock their cars after they say another theft from an unlocked vehicle occurred overnight Tuesday; the second such theft in as many days.
In a post on their Crimewatch site Wednesday, police said someone entered an unlocked vehicle in a driveway in the 3200 block of Bingen Road sometime between 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday.
“The actor(s) removed a wallet from the center console and removed $50 cash, multiple credit cards and a driver license,” police said.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to submit an anonymous tip via Crimewatch or call the police department at 610-317-6110.
On Monday township police said a purse containing identification, credit cards and less than $200 cash was stolen from an unlocked car in the upper lot at Polk Valley Park Saturday sometime between 7 and 8:30 a.m.
In that case police said the victim reportedly observed a suspicious vehicle and a bespectacled man described as “disheveled” and “large” in the area immediately prior to when the theft occurred.
Police didn’t indicate that anything suspicious was observed prior to the latest theft, but reminded residents to call and report anything they consider suspicious to the Lower Saucon Township Police Department.
To help prevent the theft of items from vehicles, police recommend that people lock their doors, take their keys with them and never leave any valuables in sight while the vehicle is unattended, even for a short period of time.
Police also recommend parking in well lit areas when possible.
The parking lots at Polk Valley Park are unlit, however the two recent vehicle thefts in the park occurred while it was open during daylight hours.
Lower Saucon Township parks are open daily from dawn til dusk.
