With Father's Day right around the corner, authorities are warning people about the rise of theft crimes at cemeteries. People are being warned to lock their cars and keep a close eye on purses and valuables after several recent thefts at local cemeteries. There have been several cases in which women have returned to their cars only to find their purses missing from their cars. As temperatures rise and more people are expected at cemeteries, authorities are warning the public to be careful. For some reason, people think it's safe to leave their cars unlocked and their valuables out in the open in a cemetery. Thieves understand this and have been taking advantage of the opportunity.
There are over 100 cemeteries in Cook County.
