WAUSAU (WAOW) - Merrill police report a rash of car break-ins has occurred in the city.
"We are seeing an uptick in property crimes. I guess, crimes of opportunity is what I would classify them. Unlocked cars and unsecured garages. Easy grabs, " said Capt. Corey Bennett.
Bennett reminds car and truck owners to lock their vehicles and secure any valuables. He says garage doors should also be secured to deter thieves.
People with any information about the break-ins should contact investigators at 715-536-8311.
