The Barrington Hills Police Department is investigating multiple motor vehicle thefts which occurred early this morning, near Bateman Road and Route 68. Based on the circumstances surrounding these incidents, the Department urges residents to secure vehicles within a garage, whenever possible.

When not possible, it is recommended to remove all valuables, including garage door opener remotes, and to lock all doors.  Furthermore, it is also important to be aware that most vehicle-integrated garage door openers will still function when a vehicle’s ignition is off and no fob is present.

Above all, the Department earnestly requests residents ALWAYS remove keys and fobs from vehicles, regardless whether garaged or not. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
