Three recent residential break and enters to garages occurred in the city, all in the southwest area.  Two of those incidents occurred overnight Thursday, and one overnight on Friday. A bike and attached children’s tow carrier was stolen during one incident, and sets of keys left inside vehicles were stolen in other incidents. These all occurred overnight and in one incident, a grainy surveillance video identified a suspect outside a residence at approximately 5: 10 a.m.  Homeowners are encouraged to remove hand held garage door openers from the interior of vehicles parked outside, lock their car doors in vehicles equipped with programmable garage door openers, and to ensure walk in doors are also secure. In none of these occurrences did the suspect(s) have to force entry into any of the garages that they entered.
