Public Assistance Requested – Vehicle Thefts
Detectives from the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit are conducting an investigation into recent reports of stolen vehicles and thefts from vehicles throughout Lake Havasu City. The thefts have primarily occurred at night, and are believed to involve vehicles left unlocked while parked in residential areas.

Additionally, many steps can be taken to prevent theft including parking vehicles in well-lit areas, installing motion lights or anti-theft alarms, as well as security cameras.
