Gaines Township Community Policing Deputy Eric Brunner is cautioning residents to be extra aware and take steps to assure that they are not a victim of thefts from vehicles.

Since January 1st, 2017 almost a dozen Gaines Township residents have had property stolen from their vehicles, Brunner said in a Community Alert.


Numerous other vehicles have been rummaged through, but no property taken. Some of the stolen property includes prescription medications and firearms from two separate vehicles, he said. “It’s a warmer weekend coming up, please be vigilant. Saturdays and Sundays are the (Kent County) Sheriff’s Office highest call volume days,” he said.


His advice:


*Lock your vehicles, especially when parked outside.

*Keep valuables out of sight.

*Close garage doors and lock service doors.

*If you have a concealed pistol license or own a firearm, do not leave it in your vehicle.
