The Northaven Park Neighborhood Association reported eight crimes committed in the area during the month of January. All but one of the crimes was vehicle-related.

January’s crime statistics are on par with November and December 2018, Ed Bright, the association’s vice president of crime watch, wrote in an email. Seven crimes occurred in the Northaven neighborhood and an eighth occurred at the shopping center.

In total, there were two auto thefts, four burglaries of motor vehicles and two thefts.

Two burglaries and one auto theft involved unlocked vehicles. Suspects stole sporting equipment from two.
