During the months of November and December, detectives with the Property Crimes Division identified and arrested ten juveniles in connection with fifteen cases in the Green Acres Subdivision, Stockwell Subdivision, and the South Bossier area involving burglaries of motor vehicles, motor vehicle thefts, and stolen firearms. Detectives recovered three firearms from the juveniles. The firearms recovered have been linked to individual cases and the owners have been notified. The investigations are still active and more arrests are expected to be made.
While there’s no 100% fool-proof way to prevent all vehicle burglaries or auto thefts, you hold the key to making yourself less likely to become a victim by following these simple tips:
• Lock your doors. It’s true that a criminal can break a window, but doing that makes noise and criminals hate drawing attention. Hide valuables from sight, or better yet, remove the items from your vehicle.
• Observe your surroundings.
• Call and report unusual activity.
