July 26, 2009 — Vail Police have seen an increase in residential burglaries since June and are asking the community to be more diligent to help prevent future break-ins.
Seven reported incidents of burglary have been investigated by the department as of June 3. This compares to three burglaries that occurred in the prior month of May.
The recent burglaries have taken place in several different Vail neighborhoods. Police investigators are currently following up with several leads and evidence recovered from the residences.
According to Commander Craig Bettis, the properties have been struck during the day when people are at work or away from home. He says the suspect(s) appear to be using the convenience of open windows and doors. In some cases, screens are being removed. Items that have been stolen include prescription medication, checkbooks and other personal items.
Vail Police are urging residents to lock their doors and windows when leaving their homes and to activate security alarms if applicable. Also, residents are encouraged to talk to their neighbors about keeping a watch for any suspicious activity and to call 911 to report it.
Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying additional leads about the recent burglaries and are offering a cash reward for any suspect information that contributes to an arrest. For details, contact Bettis at 479-2346
