With more cars on streets, increase in vehicle burglaries
The Claremont Police Department will continue to suspend the enforcement of the overnight parking ordinance (ONP) until May 16 at 2 a.m., unless notice is provided by CPD that the date is extended. This is based on the “Safer at Home” order being extended until May 15 by Los Angeles County.
With the current suspension of the enforcement of the ONP due to COVID-19, police said there are more vehicles being left on the street overnight, which has resulted in an increase of vehicle burglaries and thefts from unlocked vehicles.
“If you are going to leave your car on the street, please remove your valuables or items that may look like they contain valuables,”?police cautioned.
