Police are seeking information from the public after multiple vehicles were stolen and burglarized in different subdivisions in Antioch early Monday morning.
Village of Antioch Communication Specialist Jim Moran said the crimes happened in the overnight hours from Sunday into Monday morning.
The Neuhaven, Clublands, and Redwing subdivisions in Antioch were targeted, Moran said.
A total of five vehicles were reported to police as part of the overnight crime.
Two cars were reported to have been rummaged through with minimal items taken and a third vehicle was burglarized of softball equipment.
Two other vehicles were reported stolen. Those vehicles are a gray 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Illinois registration AF84584 and a blue 2012 Volkswagen Passat SEL with Illinois registration CA85263.
Police have security camera footage of one of the offenders and a screenshot of two offenders.
Moran said it is unknown if they are the same or different subjects due to the clarity of the video.
Investigators are asking residents who live in the neighborhoods where the crimes occurred to check their security camera footage.
Antioch Police Chief Geoff Guttschow said residents should share any suspicious activity caught on surveillance video with the police department.
Guttschow underscored the importance of residents locking their cars at night.
“Adding a few simple tasks before bed will help people from becoming a victim of crime,” he said.
The Antioch Police Department has been encouraging residents to participate in the “9 p.m. Routine,” a nightly routine that promotes checking locks on doors and windows.
Residents are also encouraged to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
Anyone who spots either of the stolen vehicles is asked to immediately notify the police.
Anyone with any additional information related to the crimes, including those with security camera video, should call the Antioch Police Department’s dispatch center at 847-270-9111 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
