Farmington Public Safety Warns Chatham Hills Residents About Larcenies

Six incidents occurred on Tuesday, between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

The Farmington Public Safety Department is warning residents to lock their cars, following reports of a half dozen larcenies in the Chatham Hills Apartments complex Tuesday, between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. 

According to a warning posted on the department's Facebook page, each vehicle was parked in the garage area and likely unlocked. Items taken included electronics and loose change.

The post reminded residents to "lock their vehicles when left unattended and remove any valuables from vehicles."

In August of last year, Farmington Public Safety arrested a Taylor man in connection with more than 20 larcenies from vehicles in the same apartment complex.

It's a real shame that you must lock your car in your own garage nowadays. I guess such a reality exists, nevertheless, as a result of thieving scumbags who lack moral standards and have no regard for other's property. If they ever owned anything on their own merits, perhaps they would reconsider their actions and have respect for others. There is no honor among thieves, either, as is commonly believed. I have had the unfortunate experience of knowing such criminals and their cowardless acts. Their bully tactics do not intimidate me, and I would hope that others would see things in a similar context. Do as Police advise, and lock and/or arm your car even in the best of neighborhoods. Be prepared to defend yourself as well. Leave no loose ends.
