Several burglaries have been reported in surrounding counties.

That’s according to the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department as the individuals have been targeting outbuildings, sheds, pole barns, construction sites, as well as new home constructions.

Police officials are asking all residents to make sure to lock their out buildings, garages, windows, doors, campers, outdoor storage containers, and homes in an order to deter and prevent thefts and burglaries from happening.

They also ask that you report any suspicious vehicles in your area, suspicious persons, individuals walking in rural areas that may appear suspicious or out of place, or any other unusual activity that seems out of place or unusual for your known area.

If you do notice something out of the ordinary, call 911 or the Sheriff's Office at 942-0336.
