Over the last several weeks, the Lebanon Police Department has been conducting an investigation on stolen items taken from inside motor vehicles after receiving multiple reports of stolen items. As a result of their investigation and numerous patrols, Sunday, the Lebanon Police Department identified 24-year old Christopher Rodgers of Grafton as a suspect for these thefts.
He was arrested and charged with three counts of theft from a motor vehicle. Rodgers was released on personal recognizance bail and given an arraignment date of June 6th, 2016.
Anyone with information on these thefts or anyone who is a victim of these thefts is urged to contact Lebanon PD at 603-448-1212. The investigation is ongoing and other police departments in our area are seeing similar trends in this type of crime, most notably Brattleboro.
Police are using this opportunity to remind residents to always lock their cars, even when they’re in the driveway, which is when residents think they are most secure.
