COMMUNITY ALERT! Vehicle Theft
The Sanibel Police Department is currently investigating a motorcycle theft, which occurred August 30, 2008, on Sanibel. The theft of this inoperable motorcycle was from beneath a Beach Road residence.

Sanibel Police Chief Tomlinson advises every resident to “make sure you lock your storage rooms and doors to your residence and take extra precaution when leaving your vehicle. Remove anything that looks valuable from the passenger compartment and put it in the trunk keeping them hidden. That includes backpacks, briefcases, cell phones and laptop computers. Keep the windows rolled up and the car locked, even when the vehicle is parked at your own house.”
