Eau Claire Police Investigating Vehicle Thefts

It has been a busy weekend for Eau Claire Police.

The department is investigating a number of vehicle thefts in the area.

Sergeant Gary Axness says in a span of two days, police responded to three calls for stolen vehicles.

He says all three thefts happened within a mile of each other on the southeast side of Eau Claire.

Axness says the department has a suspect in custody at this time, and police believe he may be involved in all three thefts.

Two of the vehicles were taken from the same owner, and one was taken from a driveway, where the keys were left inside of the vehicle.
