LOVELAND, Colo. — Loveland Police are asking residents to be on high alert after a sharp increase in vehicle thefts have been reported over the last two months.
According to police, most of the break-ins are occurring in business parking lots.
“The vehicles have been parked in parking lots of businesses for short periods of time,” Loveland Police spokesperson Justin Chase said. “When owners return to their vehicles, they are missing personal items and items of value that were sitting on the seat.”
Police said the thefts apply to vehicles that have been locked and also vehicles that have been left unlocked.
Two unknown individuals have been identified as persons of interest in the case and are pictured above. If you have any information about the thefts or either of the two individuals, you’re being asked to contact Detective Gary Patzer at 970-962-2032.
