Lower Swatara police are reminding residents to lock their cars after three unlocked vehicles were entered last week.

The reports came in May 28.

The first was at 7:21 a.m. The unlocked car was parked in the 100 block of Nissley Drive, and someone “rummaged” through it, police said.

Another resident reported at 8:49 a.m. that their unlocked car that also had a window rolled down was entered while in the 1800 block of Lakeside Drive.

Items taken included a $50 check, a $100 gift card and about $40 in change.

A third unlocked car was entered while parked in the 1000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, the owner reported at 10:15 a.m.

The owner told police that a book bag containing about $1,000 in items including clothing, cologne and swimming goggles was missing.

The incidents are under investigation.
