Rash of burglaries keep police busy

The Grass Valley Police Department is investigating more than 30 vehicle burglaries that occurred late Saturday or early Sunday.

The thefts took place in the west end of the city. Townsend, Pleasant, Carpenter and West Main streets all were targeted.

Mostly, money was reported stolen, though one victim reported 900 CDs stolen from a vehicle, according to police logs.

Out of all the burglaries reported, only one car was locked, police Sgt. Dave Bishop said.

“We encourage our citizens in being prudent when securing vehicles,” he said. “Lock your doors. Don’t make yourself an easy target.”

Bishop said the department has received several leads in its investigation. According to police logs, there were several sightings of a suspect in the case.

The perpetrators or perpetrator are being very selective in what items they are taking and are not selecting items that are easily traceable,” he said. “The more victims there are, the more leads we will have.”

Anyone with information on the thefts is asked to call the police department at 477-4600.
