Car Break-ins

Apparently there has been another rash of car “break-ins” in the Sycamore Run neighborhood recently. I put the word in quotes because in all the cases I’m aware of, cars were left unlocked, nevertheless valuables were stolen. This appears to be mainly a crime of opportunity, so please keep the following points in mind:

  • If you don’t park in your garage, lock your car at all times – even if you just have to run in because you forgot something.
  • Keep all valuables (purses, shopping bags, GPS, CDs, etc.) out of sight.
  • Stay well-lit. Make sure your garage coach lights and porch lights are in working order.
  • Keep an eye open. Report any suspicious activity to the police.

If you have other ideas or suggestions, please post a comment.

Neighborhood Crime

Within the past two weeks, Sycamore Run has had several thefts that all residents need to be aware of. Three cars have been broken into and one car was actually stolen out of a resident’s driveway. In addition, there have also been a handful of homes and cars vandalized this spring.

Most crimes are based purely on opportunity, so please do your part to discourage crime in the neighborhood.

  1. Park your cars in the garage when possible.
  2. Always lock your doors and never leave valuables out in the open.
  3. Make sure your garage coach light bulbs are working. CFLs (compact fluorescents) are particularly convenient!
  4. Beware of any suspicious activity and don’t hesitate to contact the police. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
