Around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning, Lima Police Department stopped a group of teenagers on West and Kibby who were out past curfew.

After further investigation, officers found the juveniles had stolen a newer model car from the area of Lakewood and Gloria. Throughout the night, they had also broken into several cars in the neighborhood. Now the Lima Police Department is reminding residents of the simple steps they can take, to avoid becoming a victim to similar crimes.

"You'd be surprised, the easiest thing for them to do is to lock their vehicles, that is such a simple easy routine to get into. Also if you have outside lighting on your house if you can keep that on, that deters a lot of criminals as well. Another important aspect is, is if you keep items of value in your car, I would keep them in the trunk and keep that locked. Try not to leave any items of value in the car, in plain sight so that people can see that," suggested Sgt. Jason Garlock.
