LUDINGTON – The Ludington Police Department is investigating a string of thefts that occurred Thursday, Feb. 21, and Chief Mark Barnett reminds residents to keep their homes and vehicles locked.

A home invasion in the 700 block of East Danaher Street resulted in the theft of a 65-inch TV valued at $1,000, Barnett said. It occurred some time between 7 a.m. and 4:45 p.m.

Marijuana and two glass pipes were stolen from a vehicle parked by the Salvation Army homeless shelter in the 1100 block of South Madison Street. The theft occurred some time between 10 p.m. Thursday and 4:45 a.m. Friday, Feb. 22. A folding knife was stolen from an unlocked vehicle in the 100 block of East Fifth Street, and a purse was stolen from another unlocked vehicle in the 600 block of East Fourth Street, the chief said.

“We think they’re related,” Barnett said. In addition to keeping homes and cars locked, the chief reminds residents to not keep anything valuable in their vehicles. “If you have to, make sure it’s not visible.”
