Chief Ford said on the website that the public can submit their contact information or remain anonymous.

"We only ask that submitters provide the 100 block of the street that they live on, so it can assist us with the investigation (for example 2000 block of Alby Street). The public is also reminded to not leave keys, key fobs, or any valuables inside of your unattended vehicles as this only increases the odds of being victimized."
