The East Peoria Police Department is reminding residents to lock up their vehicle after a large number of burglaries were reported in the 1900 block of Springfield Road and surrounding areas.
The burglaries include two motor vehicle thefts. The police department is reminding residents to lock vehicle doors, close windows and sun roofs, secure your valuables and mark them with your initials, record serial numbers on valuables, and don't leave your keys in the vehicle. If you have a surveillance system, check it at least once a month to make sure it is functioning and recording. Consider leaving an outside porch light on at night, as well.
Anyone with information on the recent burglaries is asked to call police at (309) 698-4700.
