Superior police are warning people to guard their personal belongings when leaving their vehicles on Wisconsin Point.

There have been numerous reports of theft from motor vehicles over the years on Wisconsin Point, and as the weather has become warmer, police have received reports of thefts again this year, according to a news release issued today.

Frequently the suspect or suspects break windows in the vehicles to gain entry. People are advised to remove valuables such as money, jewelry and electronic devices from their vehicles. That's good advice anytime you leave your vehicle parked for an extended period of time regardless of the location, said Capt. Chad La Lor.

If you must leave valuables in your vehicle, secure them in the trunk or another location where they won't be visible. And when you're parked on Wisconsin Point, check your vehicle frequently.

Police would like to nab the car prowlers. Call 911 if you observe suspicious people or vehicles on Wisconsin Point and try to get the license number and a description of the vehicle or person.
