Daily Watch Notes: Property Crime in the Foothills on Wednesday, July 29, 2015

0 Robberies, Commercial Burglaries, Residential Burglaries, Auto Burglaries.

2 Stolen Vehicles:  3100-block of Jane St NE and 10000-block of Menaul Blvd. NE.

Crime Prevention Tips:  Both of the sites for stolen vehicles in the Foothills Area Command yesterday were at target-rich environments.  That means a lot of vehicles (targets) in one location.  Both sites were located along main arterials:  Menaul near Eubank and the other site was just off Candelaria near Juan Tabo.  When you park your vehicle, I want you to bring along any parcels, purses, wallets, cell phones, cash, CDs, personal papers, IDs, drivers licenses, etc. with you.  Lock up.  Do not leave windows cracked to vent the vehicle.  Park where there are good sight lines to your vehicle.  Park under good lighting.  Criminals don’t want to be seen.  When you park, check the area:  would a criminal be seen, and if seen, is this the type of setting where anyone would report the criminal to APD?  Food for thought.  Be safe – control your environment – secure your property.
