The Hannibal Police Department has been receiving several reports over the last couple of weeks of items taken from vehicles, garages and some residences.   Many of the reports have been items taken from unlocked vehicles or entering unlocked garages to steal items from vehicles parked in the garages.  When the residences were entered it also appears that the suspect is seeking out unlocked doors, or open garage doors or seeking  keys to the residences left in the vehicles.  There have been many items taken including wallets, purses, tools and electronics including laptop computers.  Some of the areas of Hannibal where people were the victims of these crimes include the Lake Apollo Area, Hummingbird area, North Arch, Hafner and Stuart street areas.  The Police department would like for residents to make sure their residences are locked as well as vehicles, removing keys and other items such as garage door openers that can be utilized to enter residences.  Any person with information concerning these crimes or wish to report suspicious activity, are encouraged to call the Hannibal Police Department at 573-221-0987 or leave a crime tip on our website:
