Burglaries in Wilmette

Opportunistic theft in Wilmette. Tribune:
Wilmette police are asking residents to lock their vehicles and garages after more than 20 burglaries were committed in the north suburb in the last three weeks.

Most of the burglaries have been reported in the 200 and 300 blocks of Lawndale Avenue, the 300 to 500 blocks of Washington Avenue, the 600 to 1200 blocks of Gregory Avenue and the 1500 block of Highland Avenue, police said.
The last time we had a crime spree in one area the police told us it was not anything more than usual. This must be beyond that.

WBBM is also reporting the village is taking the first step to repeal the gun ban. It obviously can't come soon enough.
