Clarksville Police Department gives Crime Prevention Reminders: Residential Burglaries and Vehicle Burglaries

 

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – It is that time of the year when residential homeowners like to leave windows open, due to the mild temperatures. While having the windows open is fine when someone is at home, it may not be a good idea when the home is left vacant.

Residential burglaries have occurred when leaving windows open in vacant homes. The burglary suspect (s) simply climbs in the window, takes what he wants, and leaves the home.

Sometimes, due to no evidence of forced entry, victims do not know a crime has occurred until they find valuable items missing.

The Clarksville Police Department suggests closing windows while homes are left vacant to help prevent some residential burglaries.

Also, some vehicle burglaries occur when vehicles are left unlocked. Some vehicle burglary suspects look for vehicles that are unlocked when committing this crime. Burglarizing an unlocked vehicle takes less time and the suspect usually goes undetected.

Again, since there is no evidence of forced entry, the victims do not know a crime has occurred until they find valuable items missing. The Clarksville Police Department suggests locking vehicle doors when the vehicles are left unattended.

Recent Activity- Vehicle Burglaries:

Unlocked vehicles have recently been burglarized near Tiny Town Road between Pembroke Road and Allen Road to the Tennessee and Kentucky state line.
