Property Crime on Tuesday, March 8th and a KEY Word!

Robbery to an Individual: 1, 4200-block of Spanish Bit NE.

Vehicle Stolen While Left Warming Up, Keys Inside and Unattended: 1,

12800-block of Copper NE

Stolen Vehicles: 3 13000-Cloudview NE, 2500-block of Chelwood Park Blvd NE, 11300-block Manitoba NE.

Auto Burglaries: 3 700-block of Eubank Blvd, 11600-block of Nambe NE, 1200-block of Muriel NE.

Crime Prevention:  KEYS – Are the key!  Please know who has your vehicle keys and if they are still trustworthy to have the keys to your vehicle/home.  Crimes yesterday could have been prevented with some good ‘key custody’ measures and also with locking up the vehicle when parking and walking away.  Our ‘warm up’ auto theft was a little surprising due to the media coverage and constant warnings about this practice, but again, it bears repeating that these types of auto thefts are easy opportunities for criminals and are 100% preventable.
