I don't want to sound like a broken record, but we are continuing to see high number of car burglaries each week. I took a quick look at some of the recent auto burglary reports and saw check books, purses, lap tops, tools, and book bags (to name a few) had been stolen from cars throughout the City. Remember, this is a preventable crime. Remove valuables from your car, report suspicious activity to 911.
Last year officers arrested about 70 individuals for breaking into cars. They work hard to get these crooks off the street. A staff member is pulling the arrest numbers for this year as well as reviewing their court imposed sentences for committing the crime. I will post the findings when they are done in a couple of weeks.
What do you think a first time car burglar receives for a sentence?
