DPD Criminal Investigation Weekly Newsletter


In the past month there have been 7 break-ins in the surrounding Hope Valley area.  Recently, as per my newsletters, we have been looking for a possible suspect vehicle that was described as a Red SUV.  We believe that that vehicle was recovered on Surry Rd. yesterday thanks to a vigilant resident. Further investigation revealed that the vehicle was stolen from a neighborhood in Northern Durham. It should also be noted that the keys were in the vehicle and the windows were down which led us to believe that the suspects were still be in the area. We waited and watched the vehicle for a while but no one came back to the SUV. Uniform Patrol Officers walked the area and checked for break-ins but fortunately none were found. That being said we ask that any and all suspicious activity be reported to 911.  We will happily send an officer out to check the situation.  We do not have additional information on suspects at this time but we will continue to investigate and patrol accordingly.

Take care and be safe!!!
