It's summer-time and Evansville police say they are seeing an increase in car and home break-ins but this isn't anything new. During the months that school isn't in session crime regularly spikes, but some West-side residents say that doesn't matter and they're fired up about their belongings being taken. USI Senior Katie Howard now has a new daily routine. Placing and peeling plastic off her car window that was broken into this weekend at Golden Towers Apartments. She says the damage is worth more than the goods taken, only an Ipod and its cord are gone but her window will cost close to a thousand dollars. EPD says these crimes are common particularly among young kids. 2011 crime rates show May through August as the key months where car and home break ins skyrocket. Candice Williams is another victim, she says Wessel Lane is littered with kids riding around and her neighbors are constantly chasing them off. William's truck, her neighbor's car and another neighbor's house all have been hit, she's got a message for her possible young suspects...Eyes are definitely on them now! Neighbors in Wessel Lane say maybe a Neighborhood Watch would help stop the crime, but they also want police to step patrols up in the area. As always EPD says keep the windows up, doors locked and expensive items inside your house. Also, keep an eye out for all suspicious people regardless of their age. Call Evansville Police if you have any information about these crimes.
