On Sunday morning (July 9, 2017) at approximately 12:30 a.m. there was an attempted break-in in the 700 block of Carroll Street. The suspect rang the doorbell several times then goes to the rear of the house and kicks the back door in an attempt to gain entry. Fortunately, in this case the resident of the home was awakened by the door bell and the noise coming from the kitchen. When the resident yelled out Who’s there? the suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction.
Tips: Please be alert to possible break-in suspects. Call 911 immediately upon noticing any suspicious persons and activities.
Please be sure to keep a light on in your homes and on your front and back door. And when you turn in for the evening put your alarms on stay. Crooks hate light and noise.
And finally, please lock your sliding glass doors and close your garage door before going to bed.
Until next time, stay safe.
