CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Cheyenne Police Department is investigating a recent surge of burglaries where criminals are targeting valuable items left inside vehicles.

In the past 30 days, the department has received more than 50 reports of these incidents throughout Cheyenne. In over half of these cases, vehicle windows were broken, while other vehicles were accessed through unlocked doors.

Officers are currently contacting persons of interest and detectives are actively pursuing leads. Residents are advised not to leave valuable items or firearms inside of parked vehicles and to always remember to lock up.

Additionally, as video evidence can be valuable in these investigations, the department is recommending installing surveillance cameras in a location that captures parked vehicles.


Anyone with information or surveillance video of these crimes is encouraged to contact the detective bureau at 307-637-6513.

Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers Silent Witness at 638-TIPS or by following the link here. Callers may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.00. The caller I.D. system is not installed on the Silent Witness phone lines.
