On August 27, 2014 at 12:55 PM, Officers were dispatched to the Restore building for a theft. Upon arrival Officers learned that someone during the night time hours stole three lawn mowers one of which was a Snapper Mulcher. Officers also learned a few days prior someone had stolen a Winston Southern Cay chaise chair from outside the building. The chair was part of a much larger display of items, which was also stolen a few days prior to the chair going missing.
Within the past few weeks Officers have been dispatched to an increasing number of theft complaints involving vehicles being left unlocked and items being stolen from them. Officers remind citizens to lock their vehicles whenever they are not by them and to remove valuables from the vehicle when not in use.
As always contact the Police Department if you hear or see anything suspicious going on in your neighborhood.
On August 28, 2014 at 8 AM, Officers were dispatched to the police department reference fraud. Upon arrival Officers found that the complainant had received a phone call from 954-746-9900. The caller claimed to be from Police Protective Fund and requested a donation.
The Police Protective Fund is a scam and the caller might use a legitimate phone number from outside the area to disguise the phone call. If you receive these types of phone calls do not give out any personal information and hang up the phone.
As always the Sturgeon Bay Police Department reminds everyone to never give out sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, or banking information over the phone unless you are positive you know who you are talking to is legitimate. Never hesitate to contact Police if you have questions or concerns over phone calls you are receiving
