  • No significant activity.
Thefts are usually crimes of opportunity. Though we can’t always prevent thefts from occurring, we can try to mitigate them by always locking and securing our homes. If your home is equipped with an alarm system, please make sure to set them. With the holidays here, please be aware of your surroundings when out shopping. Thefts from vehicles can occur quickly by criminals smashing a window or simply checking the door handle for an unlocked vehicle. Don’t become a target. When leaving your vehicle unattended, please lock your doors and remove all valuables from your vehicle.
