Please see below (including attachment) from Sergeant Jeremy Burgin, our Community Services Sergeant:
Over the past two weeks, there have been six residential burglaries where the suspect(s) forcibly entered or attempted to enter homes through the rear door. Witnesses have described two potential suspects (one white male and one light-skinned adult black, possibly Hispanic, male) operating a dark blue or grey Honda. The burglaries occurred during the daytime, typically between noon and 4pm, and have affected Regency, Lochside, Camden Forest, Wimbledon, MacGregor, and nearby communities.
While those descriptions are rather specific, it is important to remember to remain vigilant for anyone whose behavior is suspicious. If you observe suspicious behavior, please call the Cary Police Department immediately. You can use the non-emergency number (919-469-4012) or 911.
Additionally, there are numerous Town of Cary resources available that can be useful. First, all Town of Cary crime data is available online (http://188.8.131.52/cary/). Please feel free to utilize that site to gather additional, factual information about what crimes are occurring in Town. Also, recent police reports are online (policereports.townofcary.org). This site will allow you access to the public information report associated with an event. You can also find additional crime prevention tips on the Community Services page (http://www.townofcary.org/Departments/police/Community_Services.htm).
Lastly, I would like to advertise for our free, residential security assessment program here at the police department. A residential security assessment is a program where an officer will come out to your home and review the physical security of your home (doors, locks, windows, lights, landscaping, alarm systems, etc) as well as discuss some mental approaches to home safety (what to do with solicitors, how to handle leaving your home for vacation, and options available to you if you’re home and someone breaks in). This free assessment only requires that an adult be present in the home during the assessment to take notes and ask questions. Most assessments take about an hour, hour and a half and can accommodate most schedules during the week. If you’d like a free assessment, please contact me directly (my information is below) and we’ll get you on the calendar.
