The burglaries have been reported on various days of the week,
including weekends, Shulman said. The burglars mostly like to steal
jewelry and flatware, he said. But, in one instance, a handgun was taken.
Police have not received any descriptions of the burglars. Shulman
said residents should pay attention to suspicious people coming or going
in and out of homes located near parks.
Neighbors can also request a home security inspection that will be
performed by the Police Department's Crime Prevention Specialist. These
inspections will educate residents about how they can better protect
themselves against such crimes and how they can prevent them.
Appointments for inspections may be made by calling (949) 644-3699.
Residents may also call the same number to get information about their
Neighborhood Watch Program.
To report any suspicious activity, residents are asked to call the
Police Department's business line at (949) 644-3717. To report a crime in
progress, they should call 911.
