Police are warning the public after four suspects reportedly broke into vehicles in Deerfield and fled from officers early Friday morning.
The Deerfield Police Department responded around 4:30 a.m. Friday to the southwest side of town for a report of a suspicious vehicle call. The subjects of the vehicle were seen entering parked cars, police said.
Officers located a white Audi and four subjects got into the vehicle and left the area. Officers attempted to stop the Audi but were unsuccessful, officials said.
Police received five reports of burglary to auto and two reports of criminal trespass to auto.
“During one incident a garage door was opened with a remote located in an unlocked vehicle in the driveway. It does not appear the residence was entered at this time,” police officials said in a statement.
Deerfield and other neighboring communities have experienced similar incidents over the last several months.
The Deerfield Police Department is encouraging everyone to lock their car doors, remove valuables from the car and not leave the keys inside the vehicle.
