Green Bay Police Searching for Suspects Involved in Rash of Auto Thefts; Request for Public’s Assistance

The Green Bay Police Department is asking the public for their help in the search for suspects involved in a rash of reported auto thefts on the City’s east and west sides.

Since January 15, 2023, we have started investigations on five stolen vehicles, each allegedly taken while parked at the residential location of the registered owner, but later recovered by police.

Reported Auto Thefts:

  • 2016 Kia Sportage – 200 Block of N. Broadway - Reported Stolen: 1/15/23
  • 2015 Hyundai Sonata – 1000 Block of Caroline Street – Reported Stolen: 1/17/23
  • 2016 Kia Soul - 100 Block of N. Chestnut Avenue – Reported Stolen: 1/17/23
  • 2022 Infiniti Q50 – 500 block of Proulx Street – Reported Stolen: 1/17/23
  • 2011 Hyundai Elantra – 200 Block of N. Broadway – Reported Stolen: 1/18/23

“We believe that there is more than one person involved in these reported auto thefts, and it appears that there could be a pattern of certain makes and models being targeted, but we do not have that confirmation at this point in our investigation. We’re asking the public to notify us immediately if they know anything or may even have captured video footage of the auto thefts on surveillance or doorbell cameras as this evidence could help us in identifying the suspects. It is not certain if these thefts are connected to the same suspects,” said Lieutenant Jason Allen, Green Bay Police Department.

Tips to Prevent Auto Thefts:
  • Lock Your Vehicle
  • Take Your Keys
  • Use a Garage if Accessible
  • Park in Well-Lit Areas
  • Do Not Leave Valuables in Your Vehicle

These investigations are ongoing. No further details will be released at this time.

Anyone with information related to these cases is encouraged to call Green Bay Police at (920) 448-3200. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime stoppers at (920) 432-STOP (7867). You may also submit a tip online at, or utilize the "P3 Tips" app for crime tips.
