All of this is preventable by simply taking items inside with you into your home or into the business you are visiting. It only takes a few seconds for someone to break into a vehicle and take these items. Most of these auto burglaries were forced entries and were mainly “Smash and Grabs”. However, a few vehicles were left unlocked.

A few homes were forced entries by kicking in front and back doors. Some homes were left unsecured by leaving doors or windows unlocked. Items that were taken were TV’s laptops, and purses. One homeowner came home to find the burglary in progress and did not approach because of what they heard and saw. The homeowner did not enter the home and stayed at a safe distance. They were able to update our operators to advise officers as they were responding as to what was seen and heard while they were enroute. Two offenders were taken into custody for the burglary. This is a great reminder of knowing your neighborhood and noticing when things are just not right. The homeowner is safe and the offenders are in custody because of the response from the officers and the homeowner.
