The Davis Police Department (DPD) has recently warned apartment complexes of “an increase in apartment complex residential burglaries in which the suspects are removing window screens to gain access.”
In the past three weeks, the DPD has been investigating five separate cases of burglaries involving the removal of window screens.
According to the DPD, the suspect(s) have been targeting unlocked windows by removing the outside screen and then entering the apartment or reaching through the window to take items. The list of stolen items include laptops, wallets, a guitar and furniture. The burglaries are typically occurring in the late evening or early morning.
Anyone with questions can contact Jonny Volan with the DPD at 747-5421 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
