Alert from LMPD 7th Division – Garage Burglaries

We have seen several garage burglaries recently. They are spread all over the 7th – no specific district. With the warm weather, people are leaving their garages open all day/night. This provides an easy opportunity for people looking to steal to take various items from garages. It also provides easy access to the home if the garage is attached. I have asked officers to remind the community to close their garages, especially overnight, as they are on patrol. Also, a reminder to keep record of serial numbers of expensive equipment/tools/firearms would be great. This information in vital in locating and identifying stolen property.
