Over the past several weeks Maplewood and many surrounding towns have received multiple thefts from unlocked vehicles as well as thefts of vehicles that had the keys left in them.  The Maplewood Police Department would like to remind residents to remove all valuables and keys from vehicles.

 

The Maplewood Police Department works hard to protect the residents and their property.  We are asking that you assist us in this effort by making sure all vehicles and homes are properly secured at all times.  All charges are merely accusations. Each suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.  Thank You
