ANTIGO - Police in Antigo may blame warmer weather for seeing more stolen property lately. In the last few weeks, the Antigo Police Department has gotten more reports of stolen property, especially from cars and garages.
"We're seeing a lot of unlocked vehicles, a lot of unlocked garages," said Antigo Police Chief Eric Roller. "It makes things worse, because they're easy access for thieves to get into."
It may be tempting to leave cars unlocked in small northern Wisconsin communities like Antigo. But police officers want people to lock their cars. They also believe the public can make the biggest impact in stopping thefts.
