Lincolnshire E-News

Over the last several weeks, residential burglaries throughout Lake County significantly increased. The Lincolnshire Police Department is working collaboratively with neighboring law enforcement and a specialized burglary task force to stop the group of individuals targeting Lake County.

Remember, immediately report any suspicious vehicles, persons, or groups who look unfamiliar to you to the Police Department. Most burglars prefer their vehicles to blend into the neighborhood. Police officers would much rather come to a suspicious call and determine it is unfounded than respond after the crime is committed.

In 2019, a local news station in Oregon asked 86 inmates what they looked for before burglarizing a home. Their responses are very similar to what’s happening in Lake County in 2022. Watch the report HERE.
