Alert: 3-9-2018

Crafton PD responded to Fountain St. at approximately 6 AM on this date for a report of two males breaking into vehicles. Two males were arrested by Crafton PD in the area with the assistance of neighboring departments. They were found to be in possession of stolen items. Victims were located and responded to the station to claim their belongings. This is just another case in which it was a crime of opportunity due to residents NOT locking their vehicles. Help protect yourself and this community by locking your vehicles at ALL TIMES. Do not be an easy target or victim. Lock your vehicles and the word will get out to the thieves and “car-hoppers” that Crafton is a community that prides itself in crime prevention. Crafton PD would like to thank the residents who called 911 to report this incident. Without their assistance and prompt actions of the residents of Fountain St., these derelicts would most likely not have been caught and would be free to steal from others. Bravo!!!
