Thefts This Week
On the night of Feb.8 San Tan Heights experienced many thefts from cars and property. I’ve been in contact with Lt. Brown throughout the day as there were a lot of numbers flying around in regards to how many calls were made from San Tan Heights; that number was 27 and wrong. The actual number is nine. But nine calls in one night means we do have a problem. Our average calls per week is 12.
Please remember that the Sheriff’s office can not be in here 24/7 and we do not have a private security firm. Our safety is our responsibility.
In the interest of keeping San Tan Heights as safe as possible it is all our responsibility to do our part. Here are some things that you can do:
THIEVES DO NOT LIKE LIGHT
We do not have many street lights except on the corners of streets. Turn on your coach lights in the front of your house, ask your neighbors do the same and light up your street at night. Turning on your back porch light is a good idea, too.
LOCK YOUR CAR
77% of the car break-ins were unlocked cars.
DON’T KEEP VALUABLES IN PLAIN SIGHT IN YOUR UNATTENDED CAR
These are all big draws to a thief:
- GPS units
- Garage door openers
- CD’s, PDA’s, Jewelry
If it will fit in your glove compartment it only takes a second to hide it.
