After a rash of vehicle break-ins and theft reports, Perham Police Chief Jason Hoaby reminded residents to lock their vehicles and remove valuables from their cars.

"I know, people say it's Perham and they don't lock their cars," he said, "but it's best not to tempt fate."

Hoaby said it's common to see an increase in vehicle break-ins when the weather warms up, so shared his cautionary comments. Thefts were being reported on the northwest side of town, but have come from all over town within the last month, he said. The police department has received about 15 to 20 reports of vehicle tampering, ranging from interior rummaging to vehicle damage, all of which are criminal activity, he said.

"Lock your cars and remove valuables," he reiterated. "Take away the opportunity for theft to occur."
