The theft of two handguns from two separate vehicles in Rice Lake has police concerned that they may be used in a crime and highlights the rising number of thefts from unlocked cars on the north side of town.

The uptick in thefts began in mid-July, said Capt. Matt Bach of the Rice Lake Police Department. A rash in thefts from unlocked vehicles isn’t unusual and typically follows a seasonal pattern.
