La Crosse Police investigate string of car break-ins

Police in La Crosse are investigating a string of car break-ins across the city.

According to the La Crosse Police Department, seven car burglaries were reported on the city’s northside throughout the weekend.

Five of the break-ins happened in the area of Avon and Wall Street while two more were reported on Boathouse Drive.

One person was arrested in the area of the break-ins carrying what the police call ‘burglary tools,’ but so far is not being charged for the burglaries.

Five other car break-ins were also reported on the city’s south side during the weekend, but police don’t know if those incidents are related to the north side burglaries.
