Items stolen were a brief case containing miscellaneous paperwork and fire testing tools which were located on the backseat of the vehicles.

I urge everyone to please take careful steps to not become a victim. Be mindful of your surroundings and if possible park your vehicles in well-lit areas. Take personal belongings with you when you exit your vehicle or secure items in locked trunks.

Do not place items underneath vehicle seats or cover them with clothing apparel. Remember to roll up all windows and lock doors before walking away from your vehicle. Do not leave personal items unattended in public areas, such as restaurants, shopping carts or counter tops of businesses.

Bicycle theft is on the rise. Most victims have reported their bikes were locked at bike racks and that the locks/chains were cut off. Please use caution and be cognizant of your surroundings when securing your bicycles. Keep the serial number of your bicycle on file in the event that it is stolen to aid in its recovery. If you see any suspicious activity, please call the Sheriff’s Station immediately at 661-255-1121.
