Many residential burglaries are "Crimes of Opportunity," such as an open garage door and open front door. Criminals often target purses, wallets and other items of value.
During some of the burglaries, residents have been home and unaware they had been burglarized until the next day. These types of crimes are particularly bothersome because most may have been prevented by taking the time to secure the garage door or front door.
Other burglaries have occurred while people were away for dinner, at work, or on vacation. Criminals have forced their way into homes and have removed electronics, jewelry and other items of value.
Remember, the most important thing is for you and your family to be safe and secure. By taking a few extra steps to ensure your home is locked and secure, you could prevent yourself from becoming a victim of a "Crime of Opportunity."
