News from the Captain

Warmer weather is here and citizens are reminded to be careful so that they don't become a victim of a deception burglary.

The suspects in these cases will approach their victims and claim that they are from organizations such as the Water Department or BGE. They will tell the victim that they need to do some type of inspection. In some cases, the suspects have even worn clothing that makes them look authentic and have shown identification badges. While one suspect distracts the victim, another suspect will enter the home and steal money, jewelry and other valuable items.

Help prevent deception burglaries by following these tips.

  • Do not allow uninvited repair workers into your home, especially if they want to fix something that you have not noticed is a problem (such as a leaky roof).
  • Do not allow anyone to lead you anywhere in your home or on your property. This can leave other areas of the home unsecure so that a thief can access those areas.
  • If someone claims to be at your home for an inspection, ask for picture identification and contact their company prior to allowing them into your home.
  • Watch for people offering services in your community and make sure to write down a description of the individuals and their vehicle, including a tag number. Report the information to police.
  • Older residents and those living alone are often targeted—keep in contact with your neighbors to ensure that they are not victimized.
  • Report any suspicious persons, vehicles or activity to police immediately.

More information about deception burglaries and other residential crime prevention tips are available online.

Make your community an uncomfortable place for any criminal. Be sure to call 911 when you see suspicious behavior in your neighborhood.
