On Sunday, Jan. 18, officers received complaints from two different residents on South Greenbrier Drive that their sheds had been forcibly entered and tools were missing.
On Monday, Jan. 19, a resident on High Ridge Road reported that his shed was entered along with a storage trailer parked next to the shed. He also lost a number of tools to the perpetrator(s).
Residents are reminded to lock up any valuable items left outside and call police if they notice any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. Residents should take inventory of valuable items in sheds and garages. Photograph the item and record purchase dates and serial numbers. Marking tools with a personal identifier, such as engraved drivers license number, will help in locating the owner of recovered property.
