SHEBOYGAN COUNTY, WI (WHBL) - Residents in Howards Grove may have a Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department member visit them in their effort to combat crimes connected to illegal drugs.
During Sheboygan’s Morning News on Thursday, Sergeant Doug Tuttle said this comes following recent incidents of vehicle thefts and the use of cash, debit and credit cards found in them for possibly purchasing illegal substances. They will be in Howards Grove to hand out pamphlets and posters, reminding them to take out valuable items from their vehicle and to lock their vehicle when not in use. Howards Grove was selected first since they were the site of some of these crimes.
Tuttle hopes their efforts will prevent larger crimes from occurring, since the environment and culture surrounding the obtaining of drug use can lead a person from stealing items from vehicles to stealing the whole vehicle and bigger crimes.
If anyone does witness suspicious activities taking place, you are asked to call the sheriff’s department immediately.
