House and Auto Burglary Crime Prevention Info from APD

Post  Admin on Sun Sep 25, 2011 8:56 am

Dear Neighbors,

I hope all of you are doing well. I have some information regarding the recent burglaries in Albuquerque. A simple way to prevent residential and auto burglaries is to lock your doors and secure your windows. Almost 30% of the recent auto and residential burglaries were by way of an unsecured car door, home door or window. Please spread the word to your neighbors that it's important to tightly secure their homes and vehicles.

The point of entry in residential burglaries are as follows: 7 were through a bedroom window, 7 were the front doors, 6 were through the kitchen window and 6 were the rear door. 11 windows were broken to gain entry and 5 doors were 'kicked in'.

APD continues to make Property Crimes are top priority and ask that you help us by preventing the burglaries by securing your homes and automobiles. I also want to remind you that if valuables are left in plain view, they act as bait for a criminal. Secure valuables in the trunk of your vehicle or away from open curtains.

As a reminder, Jill Garcia (, is the new Crime Prevention Specialist at the Foothills Substation. Please contact Jill to schedule a Crime Prevention presentation at your next neighborhood association meeting or to request a free crime prevention inspection of your home!

Stay safe,

Cliff Saylor, Commander
