Buckeye police say an “overwhelming majority” of recent vehicle burglaries involve cars left unlocked. In an even more disturbing trend, police say recent incidents involve thieves who are swiping guns from cars.

So far this year, Buckeye police have investigated 86 vehicle burglaries as a result of forced entry or cars left unlocked.

Victims have reported nine handguns, two shotguns, one nail gun and three holsters stolen. ”

Buckeye police acknowledge some victims may be embarrassed to report stolen items as a result of an unlocked car, but they say people must report these incidents so officers can track down suspects and stolen guns.
