MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – Summer is high time for break-ins and other crimes, according to Moraine police. Apparently the warm weather is a better breeding ground for crime compared to bitter winter temperatures.

Detective  Andrew Parish says business owners need to shore up their security so that they won’t fall victim to thieves on the lookout for low level ways to protect property..

Tremaine’s Volvo owner Gary Tremaine says he, for one, will add extra security after his Arbor Blvd. Volvo repair shop was broken in and a vehicle was stolen two weeks ago.

Batteries, tires and rims were also ripped off, his security fence was unbolted and car windows were smashed. He estimates he lost 10 to 11 thousand dollars because of the crime.

Moraine police warn warmer months will have an increase in property crimes – crimes committed outside in better weather. They advise owners to increase security fencing, maintain visibility from the roadway, add lighting and install video surveillance.
