Crime Prevention Notes:

Stop leaving vehicles warming up unattended!  This is a preventable crime.  Please spread the word to neighbors.  This continues to be a city-wide problem and will only attract criminals to your neighborhood as a great place to steal a vehicle.

Close garage doors.  We had a stolen vehicle that was stolen from inside the garage and the door was left open; it only takes moments to steal a vehicle; take the moment on the prevention side and close your garage door.  Watdh Monday for my posting on Crime Prevention and Garages — you’d be surprised how many offenders jump on the opportunity to victimize our citizens who leave garage doors open.

I continue to see points of entry at residential burglary cases via removing windows at the back of homes or just entering via unlocked windows.  Take the precaution to add extra locks and anti-lift/anti-slide mechanisms to windows.  Report anyone to 242-COPS or 911 who you see attempting to remove screens, windows, or get into a neighbor’s back yard. Remember, call from a place where you are safe and don’t chase, attempt to hold persons until police arrive — just provide the best description to our APD operators from a place where you are safe.

Property stolen that was left in unattended vehicles in the last 24 hours:  driver’s license, social security card, 2 wallets, $300 CD collection, sub-woofer, iPad, gym clothing, 2 briefcases, laptop, work boots and overalls, hand tools, 2 vacuum cleaners.  Please teach your family and friends to remove all items of value from vehicles and lock up.  Items of value includes personal information (registrations, insurance, driver’s license, social security cards, etc.) and garage door openers.
