Police say suspects are using bolt cutters to remove padlocks, stealing items and then replacing the broken locks with a different one.

Authorities say there may have been many other thefts where property owners have no idea their own locks were switched by thieves.

At least one suspect has been identified in the thefts and police are asking for the public’s assistance in finding other potential suspects.

If you have any information, or have had items stolen from a storage unit, you are encouraged to contact police.
