    Security Alert

    Dear Homeowners,

    There has been an increase of reported Burglary of a Motor Vehicle calls. As of now, our total will surpass our total for the year of 2012. Burglary of a Motor Vehicle is a crime of opportunity. Suspect(s) check the interior for property to steal, then decide to either break into it or check for unlocked doors. Over 90% of reported Burglary of a Motor Vehicle calls inside the subdivision with property stolen are when the vehicle owners are not securing their vehicles overnight. As of now, there is not any evidence (photos/videos) to help develop a suspect(s) description to continue any investigations. Things a homeowner can do on a daily basis to help reduce the amount of these types of calls are:

    1. Park in your driveway.
    2. Remove all property from the interior (firearms, wallets, purses, cell phones, backpacks, loose coins/money, etc.)
    3. Lock and secure the vehicle doors. Set the alarm (most are equipped with alarm systems).
    4. Before retiring for the night, double check to make sure your vehicle is secured, all property is removed from the interior, close all the doors to your garage, lock your home and set the alarm.
    Everyone’s cooperation in doing theses few things will help reduce your chances of becoming a victim to this type of crime. Help out your neighbors by sharing this information.

    HIDE IT, LOCK IT OR LOSE IT!

    Remember, Lt. Hutter will do home inspections at no charge and will give you recommendations to secure your home (see information below).

    FOR HOME SECURITY INSPECTIONS, A FREE HOME INSPECTION SURVEY, TO SAVE MONEY ON YOUR HOME INSURANCE OR GET SIMPLE SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO BETTER SECURE YOUR HOME, CALL THE PCT 5 CONSTABLE’S OFFICE AT 281-463-6666 AND ASK FOR LIEUTENANT MITCH HUTTER. You can find more information on the Harris County Precinct 5 website at www.constablepct5.com.

    Lastly, make sure alarm permits are current, that you activate your alarm and inform your alarm company to make the Constables your first emergency contact.
