MEDINA – Lock your car doors, especially at night, to discourage break-ins, Medina Police Chief Chad Kenward said during Monday’s Village Board meeting.

He said many vehicles have been hit by larcenies, including some during broad daylight.

“The larcenies are a problem all over,” Kenward said. “People are desperate for money.”

He thinks people in need of money to fuel addictions  and also because they don’t have enough to pay their bills.

He recommended the Village Board have additional lighting put in the parking lot for the senior center and village office, as well as more security cameras.

People can help themselves by locking their doors, Kenward said.
