 Sheriff's Department Warning

The Sheriff's Department warns burglaries are increasing around the county.  (Very recently in Camden Twp.-cars & buildings.) Some are ringing doors to see if anyone is home and if there is they ask for someone then say they have the wrong house.  The Sheriff asks that you give them a call if this happens so they are aware & can send an officer to check.

 440-329-3709, 329-3710 or sheriff@loraincountysheriff.com

The Sheriff's Dept. also urges residents to take pictures of valuables, jewelry, tools, TV's, electronics & the serial numbers if they have one.  It helps to catch a burglar especially if they go to pawn shops & it really helps for your insurance.  There is an app for this if you have a smart phone: ENCIRCLE & it's free.
