The police department continues to take burglary reports where the main cause is garage doors being left open. Three of these types of reports were taken over this last weekend. Most occur over night, but we also see some day time occurrences.
If you are not physically in your garage make sure you close the door, even if you are only going into your home for a few minutes or are working in the back yard. Get into to the habit of making sure your home is secure before going to bed every night. Most of these types of crimes can be prevented if we eliminate the opportunity.
