CRESWELL, Ore. — The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is warning people in Creswell to lock their vehicles.

There have been a number of reported break-ins over the week.

Residents in a north Creswell neighborhood say they’re both concerned and frustrated with the recent rash of car break-ins, but they’re hoping this will encourage the entire community to band together and find the parties responsible.

The sheriff’s office is hopes a video will help identify the suspect who was seen trying to enter vehicles over the last week.

Most of the break-ins happened late at night or in the early morning hours, and many of the cars targeted had their windows down or were simply unlocked.

Residents say it’s a good reminder to be vigilant about keeping your belongings secure, but the process and sometimes inability to replace what’s stolen entirely upsetting.

“People have to pay for those things. And right now we’re in rough times, and it’s just unacceptable,” said Clifford Hatcher, a car break-in victim.

The sheriff’s office wants to remind drivers to take everything out of their vehicles and lock their doors because something unimportant to you might be very enticing to a criminal.

The sheriff’s office is asking everyone to take a look at the video, and if you recognize the suspect in the video, you’re asked to contact them.

    Seriously??? My car, in the River Road neighborhood was broken into twice within a month. They stole significant valuables. They have hit several neighborhoods, stealing garage door openers and going back to the homes later. We have reported every incident. There’s even a video of one of the break-ins from another victim. Not a single mention in the media about it. Creswell must have more proactive police.
