PLATTE COUNTY—Thieves targeted portions of Platte County on Tuesday.

The Links Apartment Complex, Walnut Creek Subdivision and Thousand Oaks Subdivision were victim to suspects stealing from vehicles, according to a media release from the Platte County Sheriff.

Crash, credit cards, electronics and firearms were the most common items taken. The preliminary time of occurrence is believed to be between 11:00p.m. on Monday and 3:30a.m. on Tuesday.

The Sheriff’s Office received reports from at least 20 victims from those apartment complexes. Detectives are in the process of investigating leads to identify the suspects.

The sheriff reminds the public to be sure to keep your vehicle secured at all times and items of value either hidden or not in the vehicle at all. A locked door is a deterrent, not a guarantee.
