Daily Watch Notes: Property Crime in the Foothills, Tuesday 2/3/15

Robberies to a Business, Residence or Individual:  0

Stolen Vehicles:  2, one on 13200-block of Central and one on 100-block of Hotel Circle.

Vehicle Stolen While ‘Warming Up’: 1, on 3700-block of Inca NE.

Commercial Burglary: 1, on 11200-block of Montgomery.

Residential Burglary: 1, on 4900-block of Arroyo Chamisa Rd NE.

Auto Burglary: 1, on 4500-block of Morris St NE.

Crime Prevention Notes: The vehicle stolen while warming up took place in a 10 minute time frame.  Please do not think this ‘can’t happen to me’ or ‘won’t happen in my neighborhood’ — these scenarios are opportunities for offenders to take advantage of and victimize our citizens.  This is a preventable crime. 

The residential burglary occurred between 10:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. – mid-week and mid-day when most victims are at work or school or running errands is ‘prime time’ for residential burglary.  I am asking citizens who are home during the day or in/out of the neighborhood to look out for your neighbors and report anyone suspicious looking in windows, tampering with front doors, trying to climb walls or get into back yards.  Call 242-COPS from a safe place and report these incidents.

The auto burglary yesterday was to an unlocked vehicle with property left inside the vehicle.  Lock up vehicles and remove items of value; this includes garage door remotes, keys, and personal papers with your private information listed.

Stay safe and make it a point to use at least one crime prevention tip today!
