Typically when the temperature drops the crime rate does too, but the Lansing Police Department is reporting a 7.7% increase over last year at this time.

It adds up to 445 more crimes committed. The total does not include operating under the influence charges.

When looking at the actual crimes committed, not the percentage of increase, larceny jumped the most. Felonious assault was next with burglary following.
