KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Businesses are advised to lock up all commercial properties ahead of the holiday weekend, according to the City of Kalamazoo.

“There has been an increase in break-ins targeting commercial properties, construction sites, work trailers and out-buildings in our community,” says Assistant Chief Dave Boysen with the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety. “It’s critical to remain mindful of suspicious activity and unfamiliar vehicles spending a lot of time near your business, and make sure all valuables are locked and securely stored.”

KDPS says there were break-ins on Vine Street and Fulford Street earlier this month.

Those with information regarding the either of the two incidents are asked to call KDPS at 269-488-8911 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
