CRIME PREVENTION TIP OF THE DAY:
Over the past weekend and into this week, there have been a few residential burglaries that involved an auto burglary as well. Vehicles were left in the driveway with their garage door openers inside. The offenders gained entry to the vehicle by force or by the vehicle being left unlocked. They accessed the garage door opener and proceeded to gain entry into the home using the opener. We cannot implore to you enough on how important it is to secure your garage door opener when you are not inside your vehicle. It is unfortunate that these crimes have occurred, but they could have been prevented by simply clearing out a vehicle of all items. It is as simple as keeping a bag or something that you can take everything needed for your vehicle to carry in and out of your vehicle when you are not occupying it. This includes insurance, registration, change, garage door remotes, chargers for your phones, etc. These items are gold to criminals because they can take them and exchange them for cash to feed their drug habit. This type of a crime is highly drug driven and we all need to be cognizant of what is going on around us and who is around when we leave our vehicles or homes for an extended period of time.
As always, if you need further or have concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our area command substation at 823-4455. Thank you!
