SUMMER MAY COME WITH CRIME SPIKE: Detective Stephenson offers advice to stay safe

May 16, 2014

After a long winter, nearly everyone is itching to get outside this summer. Unfortunately, so are criminals.

After a couple of recent incidents of criminal mischief in the area, Columbia City Police Detective Chip Stephenson is offering advice for residents to minimize their chances of falling victim to crime this summer.

“It is important to protect yourself and be safe. With it starting to warm up, there will be more people out at night,” Stephenson said.

Recently, a series of related criminal mischief cases were reported to the CCPD.

A BB gun was used to shoot out windows and tires were slashed in four different locations — two northwest, one southwest and another southeast in Columbia City.

Police are following leads, with the suspects possibly traveling on foot or in a maroon Chevrolet Impala. Those with information should contact the Columbia City Police Department.
