2 auto burglaries occurred at the same address, but different cases, on the 300-block of Juan Tabo.  Both were forced entries to RVs through the roof vents after offenders cut a fence to access the RVs.

1 auto burglary was at an apartment complex on the 9900-block of Spain and 1 auto burglary was in a lodging/retail area in the Hotel Circle area.  The one at the retail/lodging area was a forced entry to steal luggage and clothing from the vehicle.

The auto burglaries were all a target-rich environments yesterday where access in/out is close to or along major traffic corridors and interstates.  These are great target areas for criminals. To reduce the odds of being victimized, never leave items of value in a vehicle that is unattended.  Lighting, fencing, security patrols or surveillance cameras that someone is watching/checking with downloadable data is helpful for commercial areas.
