There has been a spike in burglaries and stolen
motor vehicles in the Barrington area, including North Barrington. Offenders
enter neighborhoods looking for unlocked vehicles and/or vehicle with
keys/fobs inside. On the advice of the Lake County Sheriff's office, if
you are leaving your vehicle in the driveway, make sure there are no valuables
inside and the vehicle is LOCKED. If your vehicle is in the garage, make sure
your garage is locked and the keys are inside your home.
Most vehicle thefts and burglaries occur in the overnight hours when families
are sleeping. To minimize your risk, make sure to remove any valuables from
your vehicle, close all windows and secure all doors. Illuminate the exterior
of your home to deter offenders. Offenders do not want to be seen and
intentionally select evening hours to target vehicles and homes.
To report suspicious persons, please contact the Lake County Sheriff's office,
either 911 or their non-emergency #847-549-5200.
