A Racine County Eye reader posted the following message on Facebook:

I live in the 2500 block of Gilson Street, We have been dealing with someone going through our cars since Thanksgiving. Some of the neighbors have gone to the point that they have installed security cameras.

I realize that this can be solved by locking cars, but I feel like this person is relentless, even after locking cars him/her has continued to come back to check cars. I feel like it’s a matter of time before they start to check houses. They were caught on camera last night and it appears that it is an adult, but couldn’t see any details because they were bundled up, but the footsteps went around the cars and then went on to the neighbors house through a small opening in the fence.

The police have been notified, but they just say that we need to be aware, and make sure things are locked.

I just feel like awareness needs to be made before this situation escalates to this person breaking into garages, and or houses. I just feel like without going door-to-door we need to get this information out there.
