Oak Lawn Police issued an Everbridge emergency alert on Friday warning residents to lock their car doors because of several recent breakins. Despite being signed up for over a year to receive alerts from the village, Oak Lawn Patch did not get it. Instead, we heard about it from a Burbank resident who did get the alert.
The alert reads as follows:
"Oak Lawn Police are investigating several vehicle break ins that have
occurred since 8/29/2013 during over night hours. Most incidents appear
to be crimes of opportunity (Vehicles left unlocked). Detectives are
following up on incidents where evidence has been recovered. Residents
are reminded to lock their vehicles when unattended."
