La Crosse police: Be on the lookout for car break-ins


La Crosse police warned Thursday of a rash of car break-ins on La Crosse’s South Side.

Twenty vehicles were broken into Wednesday, mostly between 2 to 8 a.m. People reported that their windows were smashed and the cars rummaged through, although most did not have anything stolen.

The La Crosse Police Department reminded the community that if people observe any suspicious behavior, hear glass break or hear car alarms go off, they should notify law enforcement immediately. The department also asked people to take any valuables out of their vehicle and lock their vehicles at night.

Police asked anyone in the area with a home security camera to review the system to see whether they captured footage of the suspect or suspects.
