Well just when we thought the last of the self-storage robbery stories had come through our desk at USA-Storage, one to top them all comes across our newsdesk. A whopping 37 storage units were burglarized at Ottogan Self Storage in Zeeland Township, MI. According to Keith Frenz, the facility’s owner, the burglars used bolt cutters to enter through a hole they had created in the fence, and cut the locks of over one-third of the facility’s units. “They took some really unique stuff from some units,” said Frenz. Amongst the missing belongings were small items that were easily smuggled through the hole in the fence, but also snowboards, golf clubs and welding tools. While Frenz has begun trying to notify the owners of the pilfered-from storage units, it remains to be seen if any of their belongings can be recovered. One piece of evidence that stands a good chance of bringing the criminals to justice is one of the bolt cutters which was left behind in a car being stored in a unit. Frenz has considered sending it into a forensics lab to procure some sort of DNA evidence that could be used to incriminate the culprits. While double locking your unit door is generally a good safety measure against thieves, buying industrial strength locks may be the best way to ensure that your belongings will remain your belongings.
