'Lock your car, remove your valuables'
The Hastings Police Department received roughly a dozen calls over the weekend of thefts from vehicles.
The cars were located in the areas of 31st Street West, Bohlken Drive and 23rd Street West. The thefts occurred between midnight and 7 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, according to Police Chief Bryan Schafer.
"It looks like someone was going through the neighborhood, going through cars, rummaging through glove compartments and consoles," Schafer said.
Schafer stated that items taken from the vehicles ranged from purses and iPads to spare change.
"Lock your car. Remove your valuables. This was a crime of opportunity," Schafer said.
If anyone saw or knows anything about the thefts, they are encouraged to call the Hastings Police Department at 651-480-2300.
