There have been two daylight home burglaries in the 2300 and 2400 Blocks of Northcrest within the last two weeks. There is a possibility of a third home burglary that has not been directly confirmed in the nearby vicinity.
These burglaries have taken place during the daylight hours when no one was at home. The front door was kicked in and jewelry was stolen in at least one case as well as TVs being stolen in both cases.
Please BE AWARE of what is going on in your block and neighborhood! LOOK AROUND as you leave your home and make sure that nothing looks “out of place” in your surroundings.
If you see ANYONE suspicious or ANY suspicious vehicle or ANYTHING that seems unusual…CALL 911!! The police will come out and check out the situation ASAP. DON’T be afraid to call 911 even if you think it’s not worth “bothering” the Police Department about. Let them come out and make that determination!
1. USE YOUR BURGLAR ALARM if you have one.
2. If you have outdoor surveillance cameras make sure they are working, the Plano Police Department encourages all homeowners with outside cameras to register them with the PPD as they can help them solve crimes committed in the nearby area.
3. Keep your doors and windows locked.
4. Keep you garage door closed.
5. Park your vehicles in your garage if possible.
6. DON’T OPEN YOUR DOOR TO STRANGERS! If someone knocks, approach the door WITHOUT OPENING IT and say loudly “I’ll get it” or “Who is it” to let the person at the door know that someone is home. DON’T OPEN YOUR DOOR TO STRANGERS!
7. Keep outside lights on at night.
8. Keep your valuables in your home and vehicles out of clear view day and night.
9. Close your blinds at night.
10. If you see ANYONE or ANYTHING suspicious…DO NOT HESITATE…CALL 911!!
