The suspects in the incidents “appear to be on foot and traveling from house to house.” “They appear to be using a flashlight to illuminate the interior of vehicles parked in driveways and on the street,” the release said.

“These thefts range from purses, wallets, loose money, and even firearms. Many of these thefts occurred when vehicles had valuable items in plain sight inside an unlocked vehicle.

Johnson County Sheriff’s Office representatives emphasized to locals the need to lock cars and bring valuables inside at night. Every neighborhood now has more office patrols, and the traffic enforcement section is “working hard to catch these individuals.”

The office is looking into several thefts that have been reported, and they are identifying multiple individuals by reviewing surveillance footage. According to the announcement, residents are requested to contact the office at (317) 736-9155 if they have security footage that might contain proof. Additionally, the agency requests that people report any unusual activities, particularly in the evening.
