Car burglaries in Rhinelander Submitted: 10/10/2013

RHINELANDER - Rhinelander Police want to know who stole cash, cameras, and even siphoned gas from cars over the weekend.

Police got at least six reports of someone stealing from cars around Rhinelander.

Most of the burglaries happened late at night.

Some of the things stolen were small, like candy bars and small amounts of cash.

Some items were much bigger--one person's camera was stolen.

Police aren't sure if one person was acting alone, but they do have an idea about who might be responsible.

"We are trying to get leads, follow them, and see if we can determine who may be responsible for this," says Rhinelander Police Captain Ron Lueneburg.

The burglaries happened in different places around the city, including Lincoln and Kemp streets.

Many of the cars were unlocked. Police say this should be a reminder for people to keep their cars and valuables safe.

"It's important that people remember when you're not around your vehicle, to keep it locked at all times. Make sure that you remove valuables from the vehicles. Take them in your home, secure them in your trunk, but keep them out of plain view," says Lueneberg.

If you have any information, please contact the Rhinelander Police department. They'll take tips anonymously.

You can also message them on Facebook.
