PD Foothills Area Command 1/16 Update: Recovered Stolen Property, Crime Trends

Post  Admin on Thu Jan 16, 2014 6:14 pm

Received from Jill Garcia at APD:

Good afternoon Foothills Area Command Community Leaders,

I am back in the office after attending a large meeting regarding crime and crime trends that occurred over the last month. Here is what I can share with you to keep you safer and reduce your odds of being a victim of crime:

Recovered Stolen Property at the Foothills Substation
NO jewelry was found among the items recovered by our officers. If you had jewelry stolen, we don’t have it here at the Foothills Substation.

The property recovered was found on January 10th. If you have been burglarized after that date, we don’t have your property here at the Foothills Substation.
If you have been burglarized you must call 332-5240 to request an appointment with a detective.
Please do not call me to set up your appointment or to move up your appointment ahead of other’s appointments. Please call 332-5240 for assistance.

When you call to set up the appointment with a detective, have your police report case number handy. If you don’t know that number, our staff can assist you.
Bring a copy of your police report with you when you meet the detective assigned to you at the Foothills substation. If you don’t have a copy, our staff can assist you.

Crime Trends
Now that the holidays are over, we saw a trend of adults directing youths (14-19 years old) to commit crimes.
Adults are being reported ‘chauffeuring’ juveniles and waiting with a vehicle running outside target homes for burglaries; the youths are sent inside to commit the crime. Report suspicious activity to 242-COPS (2677) from a safe place.
An uptick of doggie doors being used as points of entry for residential burglaries again. Secure your doggie doors!
Seeing more cases now of going to the back of the home and breaking in through a rear door. Watch for strangers climbing neighbors’ fences or poking around yards to get to the back of homes. Call 242-COPS or 911.

Reports of 10-50 aluminum ladders a day being stolen by a person or team. These are being taken to recycle centers and exchanged for quick money.

Secure your property - Put away your ladders when done with your project – Lock up items in sheds – Keep those garage doors closed!

Thanks for sharing this information and please continue to be vigilant and practice crime prevention!
