Over the past several weeks Maplewood and many surrounding towns have had an increase in auto thefts.  The vast majority of these thefts are of vehicles left running or with the key/key fob left inside them.  Please remove these items from vehicle, secure your vehicles at all times and refrain from leaving vehicles running.

Each suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.  Thank You
