Car thefts in Kentwood, Wyoming prompt police to issue joint warning

Police in Kentwood and Wyoming have teamed up to warn the public about a string of overnight car break-ins.

Both agencies report that since May 30, someone has stolen cash, new or high-end electronics and medications from vehicles between the hours of 1 and 6 a.m. Police also report that some cars have been ransacked, but nothing stolen from them.
