Crime Prevention Tip of the Day / Property Crime in the Foothills on Monday, 11/2/15

1 Stolen Vehicle: 10500-block of Carol Place NE.

1 Commercial Burglary: 10800-block of Central NE.

1 Residential Burglary: 11100-block of Acoma.

1 Auto Burglary: 700-block of Eubank Blvd SE.

Crime Prevention Tip of the Day:  100% Preventable Crime:  Our lone stolen vehicle case yesterday was to a vehicle left with the keys inside.  Our commercial burglary appears to be due to an existing customer breaking into another customer’s rental space at the business to steal items.  Our residential burglary was an unforced entry into an unlocked home to steal cash inside the home.  Our lone auto burglary was a ‘smash and grab’ to steal a handicap placard, purse, driver’s license, social security card, EBT card, and bank cards left inside a parked vehicle.  Three of our four property crimes yesterday could have been easily prevented by properly securing property, locking up, bringing articles of value inside when parking a vehicle.  You control your environment; you have the power to prevent crime.  Start today!
