There is an emerging trend in home burglaries we are noticing. We have seen several burglaries during the past year where they are utilizing the back of the home instead of the front. Entry is gained through the back door, or by smashing out a bedroom or bathroom window.
The concept behind this method is most burglars are aware that the common areas have motion sensors in them. They are trying to thwart this by bypassing the common areas and entering directly into the bedrooms. The general thought is this is where most of the expensive items are such as jewelry and guns.
Most of these burglaries have been completed by the suspect parking in the driveway and walking into the rear yard.
While we have solved several of these cases, we still need your help. Please report suspicious vehicles or foot traffic to the Police Department. Also, please make sure that your alarm systems cover the rear portions of your homes. This should include bathroom windows and bedrooms.
Please view the attached pictures and video and see if you can recognize the suspect from this package theft. We are seeking the suspect information for this crime.
Please contact Lt. Ron Dooley should you recognize the suspect or the location of the work shirt that the suspect is wearing.
