One item stolen in the Foothills with a tracker was traced to a South West Area Command location. One victim was able to provide video surveillance of 2 male teens breaking into the vehicle. An arrest was made at another location of an offender. One vehicle was burglarized while the victim was moving items from the vehicle into the residence.
As citizens, we cannot afford to leave vehicles unlocked or to leave any items of value in an unattended vehicle.
Do not take it for granted that you are parked in front of your home, at church, etc. — it only takes seconds to break into a vehicle. Leaving vehicles unlocked with items inside makes it even easier for criminals to victimize you.
Please call 242-COPS from a safe place to report any suspicious or criminal activity on your block, at your business or at a parking lot to curb these auto burglary cases.
