FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WFRV) – The Fond du Lac Police Department (FDLPD) has seen a spike in vehicle break-ins over a two-day span between May 9 through the morning of May 10.

The FDLPD are urging community members to lock and secure doors and windows on unattended vehicles. It is also important to remember to remove valuable items from your vehicle even when it is locked.
