Pleasant Hill Police Chief Zack Orr says Pleasant Hill residents need to be careful about leaving their vehicles.
“Be sure to take the keys out of your vehicles and lock the doors,” Orr said.
Within a period of nine days, two vehicles have been stolen in Pleasant Hill.
The first theft occurred Dec. 11 at 10:46 p.m. when a red 2002 Toyota Solara was stolen from a residence in the100 block of East Quincy Street. Near by surveillance cameras show a vehicle pulling in near the vehicle, a person exiting that vehicle and getting in the Solara and driving away.
The stolen vehicle was last scene traveling West on West Quincy Street.
The second theft occurred Dec. 12 at noon, when a suspect drove a 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 truck from a parking lot in the 100 block of Parkview Drive. The suspects had to unhook a gooseneck trailer in order to steal the vehicle. The stolen truck was last scene traveling south on Parkview Drive.
“We are not sure if the two thefts are related or not,” Orr said. “We are still investigating that as well as other aspects of the thefts right now.”
If anyone has any information about the whereabouts of the stolen vehicles or the suspects involved, they are urged to call Pike County Crimestoppers at (217) 285-1500.
