Concerns shared on social media were also brought to the Mad River Township Trustee meeting on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 regarding a series of thefts in the township.
According to reports the Clark County Sheriff’s office is working with other local law enforcement agencies to identify the individuals who are breaking into vehicles that are found to be unlocked.
Residents on social media have noted that individuals have been seen entering yards over fences and have had a number of items taken from their property.
According to information obtained by the Enon Eagle, the areas near Holiday Valley and the Green Meadows Subdivisions have been targeted by the thieves. The incidents appear to be happening in the early morning hours while residents are asleep.
It is recommended that anyone seeing individuals walking in the neighborhood or cruising be reported to the police if you spot them in your area. Vehicles need to be locked at all times in the driveway or parked on the street.
Exterior lighting is also used as a deterrent and should be used to help avoid becoming a victim. If your street light near your home is not operating, contact Ohio Edison.
