It's been a long, cold, snowy winter. Not only have the symptoms of our long season been hard on people but our homes, too. In particular, the Duluth Police is warning residents about their garages. Frost and ice is preventing some garage doors from locking properly and unfortunately, criminals are aware of this. There has been a recent upswing in garage thefts where the perpetrators are gaining access via doors that haven't been locked due to snow or frost-shifting.
