Update on Recent Theft Activity

UPDATE - Close Garage Doors_Spotlight

In recent weeks the City of Wildwood has experienced a string of thefts targeting unlocked vehicles.  In several cases the suspect(s) have stolen vehicles when owners have left keys in them, and in one case entered a residence through an open garage door and unlocked interior door, where they were able to take the vehicle’s keys.  We feel it is important for our residents to know that (1) our police have been on top of this issue, which has affected several West County municipalities, (2) several arrests have been made, (3) once it is appropriate to do so, charges will be filed with the state prosecutor of St. Louis County (vs. Wildwood) against those we believe are responsible, and (4) the filing of those charges with the State will allow for more severe penalties, in order to send the message that these types of thefts will not be tolerated in Wildwood.

All residents are urged to close garage doors and lock vehicles left outside.
