Two guns were reported stolen yesterday; one stolen from an unlocked vehicle and one reported stolen during a residential burglary. Please secure your firearms when not in use.
Secure those doors! We had a residential burglary case reported yesterday with entry made via a doggie door. You may want to seal off doggie doors that are no longer being used or consider a pet sitter or ask a trusted neighbor to let the pooch out to potty while you are gone. A person with a small frame can wriggle in through doggie doors or an offender can send a child through the doggie door to the open up the door or garage door for the adult.
