CONNERSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Don’t leave handguns in an unattended car or truck.

That’s the social media message from Connersville Police Department after five reports of handguns being taken from unattended vehicles and put into the hands of criminals.

No word from police on any suspects or arrests in the crimes, or if they happened with vehicles left at specific locations.

Anyone with information was asked to call detectives at 765-825-2111.

“We appreciate your cooperation in this matter and will provide an update at the conclusion of this investigation,” the social media message said.

Connersville, a city of 13,300 in Fayette County, is about a 75-minute drive east of Indianapolis.
