Police investigate weekend burglaries in south Davis

Davis police are reminding residents to make sure their doors and windows are locked, citing a string of burglaries in the south Davis area over the weekend.

The burglaries or attempted break-ins occurred Sunday, taking place overnight or in the early morning hours when the victims were home. Two of the burglaries were successful, one was interrupted and the other was an attempted break-in, according to a Police Department news release.

The intruders entered through unlocked sliding doors and unlocked bedroom windows. Stolen items included laptop computers, jewelry, cash, cell phones, electronics and credit cards.

The burglary that was interrupted occurred at 4:34 a.m. Police said the victim briefly saw the intruder leaving through an open window. No information on the suspect was available.

Police encourage residents to make sure all windows, doors, garages and side gates are closed and locked when not in use. They advise people to keep their doors locked when they are home, and especially at night when they are sleeping. Burglars have consistently targeted unlocked entry points, officials said.

Residents also are urged to report any suspicious activity, such as people walking or driving up and down the street, checking for unlocked doors, or looking in windows, backyards or vehicles. Vehicles cruising a neighborhood at very slow speeds, or people sitting in a vehicle for an extended period can be signs of suspicious activity.

Anyone who observes such activity is advised to call 911 from a home phone or (530) 758-3600 from a cell phone.

Police also recommend that residents inscribe or engrave their driver's license number on valuables, and keep a record of all serial numbers of personal electronics, computers, cameras and gaming systems to aid in the recovery if found.
