Lakewood Police nab vehicle burglar with the assistance of LCSW [VIDEO]

A man suspected of burglarizing multiple vehicles was arrested by Lakewood Police with the assistance of LCSW.

At around 12:00 AM this morning, LCSW received a call about a man rummaging through vehicles in the area of Private Way.

Responding members canvassed the area, locating the suspect. He took off running, but members followed him to the motel at the corner of Madison and 5th Street, and phoned police.

The man – who police say has allegedly been burglarizing vehicles for a while – was apprehended without incident.

  • Marc says:

    I am as shocked at his appearance, as many others must be. He wasn’t wearing a mask!!!

  • Barbara says:

    If he was able to rummage through the cars, does that mean the cars were not locked? How stupid are these owners not to lock their cars. It is an open invitation to a burglar.

  • Thankful says:

    LCSW you guys are amazing!!! There 24/7 for the community! Keep up the great work!!

  • My Take says:

    If drivers keep on leaving their cars unlocked, it is their fault if they are burglarized. They make it easy for them to rob.

  • JT says:

    Thank you so much, Barbara! I was so concerned because here we had an article once again about an individual committing a crime against others – and I was so worried that people would mistakenly think that the one to blame in this situation was the individual who stole that which belongs to others. Thank you so very much for reminding us that the one to blame – and the one at fault – is, of course, the victim. Because every one knows that if you are such a terrible human being that you forget to lock your car – then OF COURSE you DESERVE to have your car burglarized!

    Thank you, Barbara, now I can sleep peacefully tonight.

    (BTW, don’t fool yourself – those who burglarize cars know how to get in even to LOCKED cars – I know if might shock some and be disappointing because it goes against their narrative.)

    Before anyone passes judgement on this individual, one must contemplate is it not possible that this individual saw a sign in Lakewood advertising a Rummage Sale, and that he naively thought people were leaving items in their vehicles for the rummagers to rummage as part of the Rummage Sale? I’m just saying; it’s possible.
