The city of East Lansing has issued a press release in which the East Lansing Police Department (ELPD) "is advising East Lansing residents to lock all doors and windows in light of a recent string of home invastions that occurred at apartments in the Northern Tier area last week." The press release indicates that the "ELPD is investigating five reported apartment break-ins that took place during the late night hours of Thursday, Sept. 6 and early morning hours of Friday, Sept. 7. The suspects entered the apartments through the sliding glass doors off of ground and second floor balconies and stole various items of value, including laptops and cash/credit cards. All doors were unlocked and some were open during the break-ins."

East Lansing residents may also be interested to know that the ELPD now participates in a "crime mapping" program that allows citizens to see where crimes have been occurring. You can use the interactive system for free by going to this website.
