Crime Prevention to help you — one of these burglaries was to a shed at a residence. Keep sheds locked — not only are they a target for an offender to steal tools, etc, but can be a hiding spot. Offenders in our other case yesterday entered the home via the garage. I have posted a piece on “Crime Prevention and Garages” on this web site and nextdoor.com that you may find useful. Try to think of your garage as a door to your home.
Auto Burglary: 2, One on 500-block of Tramway and one on 11200-block of Montgomery.
Crime Prevention to help you — one vehicle above was left unlocked and IDs and a Social Security card were stolen from the vehicle left parked unsecured overnight. The other vehicle in yesterday’s auto burglaries was locked, but a window was broken to steal a wallet left inside the vehicle. Remove your items of value — including items with personal information about you — when you park. A simple change of habit (leaving items of value in an unattended vehicle) can reduce your odds of being a victim of crime.
