Burnsville police urge precautions after recent burglaries
Burnsville police are urging homeowners to take precautions after three recent burglaries in northeast Burnsville.
The burglaries have occurred since July 10. In each case, the suspect or suspects entered through unlocked patio doors when the residents were at home sleeping. Hours of the burglaries are believed to be between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
Losses include large, flat-screen televisions, laptop computers, iPods, jewelry, wallets and other items.
Police remind residents to keep all doors and windows locked, especially those are on ground level or are easily accessible. Consider double checking that doors are locked prior to going to sleep for the night.
Residents should keep garage doors closed and, if possible, consider closing blinds and drapes so people can’t see what’s inside the home, police advise.
Residents are urged to not leave garage-door openers inside vehicles parked outdoors.
Report suspicious activity by calling 911.
