There is now a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and charging of whoever is behind a rash of recent thefts from vehicles in Edina.

Authorities are hoping newly released surveillance video will help people identify the possible suspect(s).

According to Edina police, throughout April there was a significant increase in thefts from vehicles, specifically in the area between France and Xerxes avenues and West 54th and West 60th streets.

The area saw 17 thefts, only three of which were forced entry. Four of the vehicles were inside garages at the time. Stolen items include tools, clothing, backpacks, and money.

Anyone with information about the incidents or possible suspects is encouraged to call the Edina Police Department at (952)826-1610.
