They said crime was down but suddenly a spike in thefts from cars!

Number of car break-ins in Utica up over last year
By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y.(WKTV)- The numbers are staggering, 389 car break-ins in Utica so far in 2012. That's about 15 percent higher than the total of 340 in all of 2011, and there are still three months left to go in the year.

Utica Police Sgt. Top Internet Bullshit Artist Steve Hauck says the increase may be due to the economy, and the fact that car larcenies are such easy crimes to commit.

Hauck says the two main things you can do to prevent yourself from becoming a victim, are making sure your car doors are always locked when your vehicle is parked, and don't leave anything of value in plain sight, "If you keep the car locked and you keep nothing of value in sight, they will go to the next vehicle, because that's really what they're looking for, they're looking for the path of least resistance."

Hauck says it's also a good idea to keep an outdoor light on at night. He says the thieves often look for dark areas to commit the crime.

Also, if you are a victim, even if someone just steals loose change, Hauck says report it to police, "The other aspect of this crime, which a lot of people don't think about is, it goes unreported a lot. They go to the car and all they took was change, or all they took was something I really didn't need, so they don't bother. It's something, even if you don't want prosecution, to call us, because we need to know where these crimes are occurring so we can focus our enforcement."

If you are reluctant to call police because you don't want to take the time to go down to the police station and file a police report, you can do so online, or over the phone, all without an officer having to come out.

Hauck says in these types of larcenies, it's usually one or two, or a group of people, committing the same crime, over and over and over, "And if we can find out if they are in a particular area, it can help us track, maybe where enforcement needs to be. If you see something in your neighborhood that just doesn't quite look right, no matter, where you live, call us, we'll check it out, if it's nothing, then it's nothing, but you never know what you might prevent."

I would not help these people at all even if I saw a crime. They arrested the kid nexed door to us last year and had to let him go their facebook page says all you need to know about how much the upd cares about serving the community. They make topix look nice and polite! Fk these losers and their lies that change every day.

What is really ridiculous is how u read about in the papers everyday and see on the news everyday about car break ins and people still leave their purses, laptops, cameras and any other valuables in their cars! Do you really need the cops to tell you to lock your cars and do not keep valuables in them?

its simple they cant change the numbers when they have alot of officers and they stay the same when the have less numbers so its time to cut jobs and rehire new if they cant do the job they are paid to do

The real statistic I would love to see, are what is the Percentage of these crimes that they are able to solve/convictions? That would show the people of Utica that Crime is up and the UPD is not solving the case's.
