The City of Pittsburg experienced a series of vehicle burglaries over the weekend. The Police Department responded to seven reports of these on Sunday, May 4, 2014.

Lock all vehicle doors and ensure all windows are secure before leaving your vehicle unattended.

Never leave keys or valuables exposed in your vehicle. If you must leave items in your vehicle, place them in the trunk or hide them out of sight.

If possible, park your vehicle in a well-lit, visible area.

If you have any information regarding this investigation please contact the Pittsburg Police Department at (620) 231-1700 or submit a crime tip on our website. It is imperative that the Community and the Department work together on this and other crimes. Every bit of information is vital to the detection of offenders and prevention of crime.
