A garage burglary occurred near the 18000 block of Grace Lane. In this incident the suspect(s) entered the victim’s garage by unknown means and stole a “Dawes” road bicycle. There was no damage to the garage and the victim was unsure how the suspect entered the garage.
Here are some tips to help reduce the chances of you being victim of a vehicle burglary: Lock your car doors, remove any items that would attract thieves such as Ipads, Iphones, lap top computers and sun glasses. It is also a good idea to remove garage door remotes from your vehicle if possible. Park in a well lit area and LOCK YOUR DOORS!
