Students at a Dubuque County high school are being urged to lock their doors after recent a string of car burglaries. Administrators at Western Dubuque High School in Epworth say security cameras have caught suspects going through cars in the school parking lot over the past several weeks. The burglaries typically happen between 8:00 and 10:00 at night. Suspects have mainly been targeting vehicles with unlocked doors. After getting into the cars, they take anything that appears to be valuable. Administrators are encouraging students to keep their car doors locked when parked at the school. They also advise students to not leave valuable items where they can be seen from outside the car. The suspects have been seen driving a maroon Dodge crossover or hatchback vehicle. Anyone with information about the car break-ins is asked to contact Epworth Police or the Dubuque County CrimeStoppers tipline.
