The Davis Police Department (DPD) received eight burglary reports between New Year’s Eve and Wednesday. The reports came from East, West and South Davis.
Three of the burglaries occurred when the residents were present. One occurred on Tuesday at 10 p.m., in which a resident’s doorbell rang and by the time the resident came to the door, the suspect was gone. The resident noticed a male subject riding away on a bicycle, and discovered a removed window screen. The resident described the subject as a 25-year-old Hispanic or white male.
Out of the eight burglaries, the suspect gained entry to six residences through an open or unlocked door or window. One was through unknown means and another was completed when a window screen was removed with no entry.
Stolen items included jewelry, electronics and wallets.
The DPD recommends residents lock their doors and windows, trim back trees and shrubbery that may obstruct windows, place locks on exterior gates, activate home security, acknowledge those at the door if you feel it’s safe and form neighborhood watch groups.
The DPD can be reached at (530) 747-5400.
