Wayzata Police: Multiple Reports Of Thefts From Vehicles

The Wayzata Police Department has taken multiple reports of thefts from vehicles during the past several days.

According to investigators, vehicles have been stolen when keys are left inside.

Most of the thefts are occurring overnight, according to the police department.

Back in November, investigators reported similar crimes.

“Very similar in nature – a little more aggressive in that if valuables are in plain view, they are more likely to break a window,” said Police Chief Mike Risvold.

The Wayzata Police Department reports that the thefts are taking place in driveways, parking ramps, 
and underground parking garages. 

It’s not just Wayzata that’s been hit.

“This is occurring in all of western Hennepin County and our police agencies are working together to investigate,” said Risvold.
