UPDATE: Caledonia Police have released photos of several suspects involved in a car theft.
The male suspect was spotted with the stolen Oldsmobile at Speedway in Caledonia. He also used a stolen credit card that was taken from a different car at the same gas station. He also used the same credit card at another Speedway at 5712 West Burnham Ave. in West Allis and at a Walmart in South Milwaukee.
The female in the photo was also seen driving the car and using the credit card, said Lt. Gary Larsen.
ORIGINAL STORY: Following reports of several cars being stolen and entered over the last few days, Caledonia Police are warning residents to keep their cars locked.
Three cars — a blue 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue, silver 2001 Dodge mini-van, and a black 1996 Honda sedan — belonging to people living in the Lake Shore Village Apartments, 3 Mile Rd., and North Main St. were stolen between June 13 through June 16. The mini-van was found nearby.
Police have also taken three complaints of items being removed from their cars from the same area.
“The biggest thing is that people need to keep vigilant,” said Lt. Gary Larsen, of the Caledonia Police Department.
