As a wave of car burglaries and thefts has swept over Lockport and the rest of the southwest suburbs, police are now warning residents that the criminals are highly organized and pose a serious threat to public safety.

“This is the crime of the area right now,” Lockport Chief of Police Terry Lemming said. “These are different kinds of criminals. [...] The evidence we’ve seen so far is that a lot of them are armed.”
