Public Safety Notification
The Village of Lemont has recently experienced some car burglaries along the I-355 Corridor. Thieves target unlocked vehicles (bypassing vehicles that are locked). In one instance, a vehicle has been stolen because the keys have been accessible within the vehicle.
As the Police Department is attempting to solve these crimes, the Lemont Police Department would like to remind residents to always lock their vehicles at night and take their keys and key fobs inside their homes before retiring for the evening. Always try to leave lights on to illuminate the exterior of your home and driveways. Additionally, please be vigilant in being aware of your surroundings and always report any suspicious activity to the Lemont Police by dialing 911.
Thank You- Chief Marc Maton
