On the evening of May 30, 2018, several male individuals went through approximately 20 unlocked vehicles in the Oreland section of Springfield Township. The affected strees include Allison Road, Garth Road, Redford Road, Ulmer Avenue, Drayton Road, Enfield Road and Kingston Road. The males left the area in what appears to be a white Dodge Challenger with tinted windows. Another witness reported that three males fled onto Garth Road in a white SUV.
The Springfield Township Police Department is urging all residents to follow these tips to avoid being a victim of property theft:
Automobile Security - Keep automobile windows closed and doors locked even if the vehicle is parked in your driveway or in front of your home. Do not store valuables in the car. If you must leave items in your car or truck, please be sure that they are out of sight and in the trunk if possible.
Home Security - Maintain home security by locking all doors and windows, particularly those on the ground level. Be sure to prune any trees that might provide access to a second floor window or door. Lock all ladders in your garage or tool shed. Do not place purses, money, jewelry, small computer equipment or other valuables in plain view of a door or window.
Social Media - Do not post on social media your daily schedule or activities, or let others know about your weekend or vacation plans. Refrain from posting vacation pictures until you have returned home from your trip.
Protect your neighborhood - Be a good neighbor and call the police department at any time of the day or night if you see something out of the ordinary or suspicious in your neighborhood.
