The Cheyenne Police Department is investigating a recent surge of burglaries
where criminals are targeting valuable items left inside of vehicles.
In the past 30 days, we have received more than 50 reports of these incidents
throughout Cheyenne. In over half of these cases, vehicle windows were broken,
while others gained access through unlocked doors.
Officers are contacting persons of interest and detectives are actively pursuing
leads. We encourage citizens to exercise caution anytime vehicles are left
unattended. Do not leave valuable items or firearms inside of parked vehicles and
always remember to lock up.
Additionally, video evidence can be very valuable in these investigations – we
recommend installing surveillance cameras in a location that captures parked
vehicles. Anyone with information or surveillance video of these crimes is
encouraged to contact the detective bureau at (307) 637-6513.
