Six thefts reported in Frisco Thursday
June 8, 2015
Frisco police are investigating six thefts that took place in one day, between 3 p.m. Thursday, June 4, and 7 a.m., Friday, June 5. In every reported case, trespassers took cash or small items from unlocked cars parked near residents' homes.
"We're working on some leads," said Frisco Police Chief Tom Wickman, adding that a suspect had not yet been identified. He said that most of the reported thefts took place near Lakepoint Drive, on the north side of town.
"We're in a really beautiful area. I'm not sure how they got here or if they came down from the bike path," said a Frisco woman whose car was broken into while it was parked in her driveway along Lakepoint Circle. "Nothing was slashed or broken. I'm grateful for that."
She discovered the theft after she opened her car, which was unlocked, to find toys she keeps for her grandchildren scattered across the floor in a state of disarray. So far, she thinks the trespassers only took some spare change she kept in the console.
"I've been telling my neighbors to keep their cars locked up," she said. "People always say 'It doesn't happen in my neighborhood,' but it happens everywhere."
Frisco police encourage residents to keep doors locked at all times, keep house lights on and report any suspicious activity in the neighborhood.
