Two cars burglarized outside gym

Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Two cars were burglarized this weekend at the Stephens Family YMCA. This comes months after the gym put in security cameras, which were installed in part to reduce the risk of break-ins in the parking lot. 

The crimes happened Sunday afternoon. They have been reported to police, and the CEO of the YMCA says they plan to share the video with authorities. He says crime isn’t usually an issue at the Y, but he thinks the cameras make things safer. 

Victims and gym employees are warning others to bring valuables inside with them just in case.
