Property crimes reported in the Foothills Area Command on Tuesday, January 24, 2017

3 Armed Robberies to a Business:  11800-block of Central NE,  9700-block of Menaul NE, 2800-block of Juan Tabo NE.

3 Stolen Vehicles:  600-block of Morris St NE, 900-block of Pawnee, 3600-block of Eubank NE.

1 Residential Burglary:  12000-block of Skyline Rd.  Entry via an unlocked sliding glass door at back of the unit. This is a preventable crime and citizens need to secure their property.  Stole a TV. 

We had another case which is not counted in our numbers because a police report was not filed.  The victim didn’t want to file a police report, wants a watch put on the house by officers due to being a victim of a residential burglary and had officers dispatched to tell the officers there is a lot of crime in the area.  The victim left the garage door open for about 2 1/2 hours and items were stolen from the garage. This is a preventable crime by merely closing the garage door — control your environment by securing your property and your odds of being a property crime victim plummet.  I can teach you crime prevention tips for your home if you call me at 332-5240 and book an appointment for me to meet you at your home.  

3 Auto Burglaries:  3100-block of Christine NE, 2000-block of Eubank, 12700-block of Academy.

Entries were ‘smash & grab’ (breaking a window) to steal a purse ‘hidden’ under the front seat in one case.  The purse and contents which included a drivers license, Social Security card and credit cards were stolen — most likely will be used to commit further crimes like identity theft.  It’s not a good idea to ‘hide’ any valuables inside a vehicle and walk away — someone may have been watching the victim ‘hide’ the purse or saw part of the purse inside the vehicle and smashed the vehicle window to steal the purse.  This was a preventable crime by simply leaving the purse at home and only carrying the items necessary for the errand or bringing the purse inside the business for the appointment/errand. 

The other two auto burglaries yesterday were attempts to steal the vehicles with damage to the ignitions and dashes.

Be safe,
