Four vehicles were stolen from Verona driveways in the past week, and three were burglarized. One of the vehicles that were pursued was involved in a shooting several hours after it was stolen.
Chief Christopher Kiernan released the following statement:
"You can save yourself from being a victim of theft and you can actually prevent violent crime. It is as simple as REMOVING YOUR KEYS / FOBS from your vehicles! If not for your own inconvenience, at least consider innocent people affected by you leaving your keys in the car. From victims of street crimes, innocent drivers these vehicles collide with, to my own officers trying to apprehend the suspects."
