First Bettendorf and now Davenport and Moline are urging you to keep an eye on your lock button.

One week ago, I blogged about the rise in car thefts in the Quad Cities, particularly in Bettendorf, to the tune of 2 per day. That's absolutely staggering. Now, Davenport is seeing such a rise, they are warning you to keep your doors locked.

Over 750 cars have been stolen in the Quad Cities since 2016, according to Davenport Police Chief Paul Sikorski is putting out the warning to keep your car doors locked.

Police are bound by a no-chase policy for public safety and many of these teens are getting away with it so much so, there's a call to rethink what's behind that policy because this has gotten out of hand.
