Over the past week, the Menomonee Falls Police Department responded to a variety of thefts from vehicle throughout the village.
Between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday an unknown person used a pry tool to break into a vehicle parked outside Waste Management, W124N8925 Boundary Rd. His window GPS was stolen as a result.
A car was also broken into May 18 on the W18400 clock of County Line Road. The suspect used a prying tool to shatter the driver’s side window of the vehicle. The suspect stole an iPhone, but surveillance video is available.
Then, between noon May 19 and 10 a.m. Tuesday, four catalytic converters were cut off separate vehicles parked in a lot on the 13000 block of Silver Spring Drive. The owner of the lot noticed the converters were gone after starting one of the vehicles.
Another catalytic converter was stolen form a delivery truck parked outside Bachmann Furniture, W57W13380 Carmen Ave. The theft occurred sometime between 5 p.m. May 18 and noon Monday.
Police ask residents to report all entries to vehicles — no matter what type of items were taken. Reporting these crimes can help police target areas and help to establish a time frame for the occurrences — without your reports, police will not know of the crime that is occurring.
If you have any questions or information regarding these thefts, please contact the Menomonee Falls Police Department (262) 532-8700.
