Since Oct. 29, the Caledonia Police Department has taken 11 criminal damage to property and theft from vehicle reports in southeastern Caledonia.

The reports started coming into the department on Oct. 29, then on Friday and Saturday night.

Residents reported their car tires punctured and phallic images scratched onto the outside of the cars. If the car was unlocked, the suspects went through the car, cut their seats, wrote on the inside of the car with a marker and took items, according to a press release.


“The Caledonia Police Department would like to warn residents to pay attention to unknown individuals in their neighborhood and to report any suspicious activity or person(s),” the press release reads. “Residents should also make sure they lock their vehicles and do not leave valuables inside their vehicles. If possible, keep vehicles inside garages.”

If anyone has information regarding the incidents, please contact Capt. Brian Wall of the Caledonia Police Department at 835-4423 ext. 139.
