Burglar targets valuables in vehicles

Staff writer

Reports of theft from automobiles have made their way to social media and Marion police as several townspeople have had their belongings taken in a string of burglaries.

“Some things were taken out of some vehicles, like purses and wallets,” Police Chief Tyler Mermis said. “We’re still investigating. We actually have a couple leads.”

He advised car owners to lock their doors and remove valuables.

“I would suggest that people, even though we live in a small town, the best thing to prevent people from taking things out of your vehicle would be to make sure you take your valuables inside the house and lock your cars every night and even during the day,” Mermis said.
