SPECIAL ALERT to those who live on or near the CREEKS on WESTWOOD, WESTBROOK and SPRINGBROOK east of Custer and VALLEY CREEK west of Custer or BACK UP to OFFICE BUILDINGS OR OPEN FIELDS ALONG PLANO PARKWAY
Wednesday night a robbery occurred in the early morning hours in a nearby neighborhood. The homeowner’s backyard backs up to the creek and the burglar broke in through the back doors with the alarm on and stole the homeowner’s handbag. The handbag was visible from the yard through the doors that did not have closed draperies. The homeowner said the whole thing happened within minutes and by the time they got out of bed the criminal was gone. The glass was broken and the alarm was blasting and this did not stop the criminal.
The Plano Police think there may be people walking in the creeks at night. They appear to to looking for a crime of opportunity and are brazen. That means DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VALUABLES IN CLEAR VIEW DAY OR NIGHT! Please close your blinds at night and if you have an alarm…use it!!
There ARE people watching us to see when we come and go and looking for an opportunity to do a malicious act. DON’T give them that opportunity!!
Remember these are actions you can take to be safe:
- Keep your doors and windows locked.
- Don’t leave your garage door open.
- If possible, park your cars in the garage.
- At night keep outside lights on if possible..many people use motion sensors.
- DON’T open your door to strangers.
- If you have an alarm..USE IT!
- If you see someone or something suspicious call 911
