Thieves have recently attempted to steal a Kia in our city. There has also been an uptick in thefts of Kia and Hyundai vehicles in the area in the last few weeks. The Sheboygan Police Department would like to remind everyone that you should always lock your car, NEVER leave your keys/key fobs inside of your vehicle, and park in well-lit areas.
Kia and Hyundai owners are also encouraged to speak with their dealership to see if their vehicle qualifies for any theft deterrent software or hardware upgrades. You can also purchase a steering wheel lock to help deter theft.
We would also like to remind people to ensure their doorbell cameras are working properly, if they have them. If you do not have a doorbell camera or other surveillance system in place, consider investing in one. The surveillance footage provided by doorbell cameras is often very helpful in solving cases and identifying suspects.
