CINCINNATI -- Mariemont police want residents to lock their cars and remove all valuables after two cars were stolen in one week.
The cars were both unlocked and parked in driveways when they were stolen, Chief Richard Hines said. In one of the thefts, the car’s keys were in the ignition. Police recovered both vehicles and charged two teenagers with auto theft for one of the incidents.
“Obviously, we want to encourage people to definitely not leave their keys in their vehicles and to lock doors and to not leave valuables in their cars,” Hines said.
Drivers should always remove all valuables, even if their car is locked, Hines said.
“While we want people to know they live in a safe community, we also encourage them to realize we’re not immune to people coming in and doing these types of things,” Hines said.
