MOON TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Moon Township police are reminding residents to lock their cars after a rash of burglaries.

Thieves stole from vehicles at the Forest Green Commons and stole electronics and cash.

“One car they took some jewelry, cash, iPod down the street,” Ron Ford, a neighbor, said.

Police say the thieves are looking for items left in plain view.

Moon Township Police Captain Greg Seamon says these are crimes of opportunity.

“Make sure you lock your doors,” he said. “Don’t keep valuables in your cars and [if] you see anything suspicious, call the police right away.”

So far, 25 car burglaries have been reported.
