There Were 4 Attempted Burglaries in South Davis Sunday Morning

One of the burglaries was interrupted by a resident who saw the suspect flee through a window at 4:34 a.m.


There was a string of residential burglaries in South Davis early Sunday morning, according to the Davis Police Department. Some of the burglaries were successful, but one was interrupted by a resident who saw the suspect flee through a window at 4:34 a.m.

"Suspect(s) gained entry through unlocked sliders and unlocked bedroom windows," said the Davis Police Department in a release on Monday. "Stolen items include laptop computers, jewelry, cash, cellphones, electronics, and credit cards."

Here are the details, via the Davis Police Department

The burglaries occurred overnight or in the early morning hours when victims were home or asleep. The interrupted residential burglary gave us an exact time of occurrence which was 4:34 AM. In this case the victim briefly saw the suspect as they fled the residence through an open window. There is no suspect description at this time.

Please take a minute to review the following tips and preventative measures:

Make sure all windows, doors, garages, side gates, etc. are closed and locked when not in use. It is also suggested keeping doors locked when you are home, especially at night while you are sleeping. Suspects have been consistently targeting unlocked entry points to gain access to residences. 

Report any suspicious activity such as persons walking or driving up and down your street, checking for unlocked doors and/or looking in windows, backyards or vehicles. Vehicles “cruising” your neighborhood at very slow speeds or sitting in a vehicle for extended periods can also be signs of suspicious activity. 

Remember to always go with your “gut feeling”, if something does not feel or look right, it probably isn’t. 
BE ALERT, BE AWARE, and be prepared to BE A GOOD WITNESS. CALL 911 from your home phone or 530-758-3600 from your cellular phone to report suspicious activities in progress!!

Mark your valuables! As a last line of defense, we suggest inscribing/engraving a “personal identifier” on all valuables by using your driver’s license number. Record all serial numbers of all personal electronics, computers, cameras, gaming systems and any items of value and keep in a safe place, this can aid in recovery of property if found.

I always think that at first but then realize it's not worth possibly badly injuring or killing someone for a few grand of electronics. How about salt loads, followed by a taser blast.

Sure would be nice to be more specific about the location. South Davis is a big place. You could give a several-street radius so as not to bother the victims...but, for instance, I live in the core area. Now, that's also a fairly large area. But if you could say something like "between 2nd and 5th streets, and A and D streets, we could have some idea. we might see some patterns.

Yes, I see maps, which are helpful. I'd like a verbal description...

Locations on the map are very near greenbelts, which are great routes for escape and evasion for the criminals. tell your neighbors too.
