Burglary increase noted

The Sierra Vista Police Department report a 10-percent increase in burglaries over the past two months compared to the same time last year. Several of the burglaries were completed by unforced entry because doors or windows were left unlocked or open.

Secure houses and vehicles when leaving them, even for a short time. Recently, a vehicle burglary was committed when a vehicle was left unlocked for a few minutes as the owner ran into a store.

Remove or hide items from view in vehicles by locking valuables in the trunk. The SVPD provides a free, 45-minute burglary prevention inspection for residences. For more information, contact 452.7500 and request an inspection or go to SierraVistzaAZ.gov and search for security.

Drivers following too closely will be cited and could be fined $173. For more information, call 452.7500.
