    Security Alert

    Dear Homeowners,

    Over the Memorial Day weekend, we had several calls regarding burglaries of motor vehicle and thefts from vehicles. In all reports doors were left unlock and unfortunately personal property was stolen. The theft from a vehicle were auto parts.

    At this time, we have no evidence or leads to help further our investigations. I have also checked with Houston Police Department due to the number of reports they have taken and they also do not have any evidence or leads.

    This year, Spring Shadows has been plagued with burglary of motor vehicle calls. I can safely say that between 90-95% of these vehicle burglaries involved unsecured vehicle doors as no forced entry was made by the suspect(s).

    All of these vehicle burglaries occur during the night time hours. These thieves are targeting computers, wallets, purses, cell phones, cash money and the most concerning items are firearms/handguns.

    Pct. 5 Deputies are patrolling the subdivision and finding open garage doors and vehicle dome lights on. The Deputies are getting out and trying to notify owners to secure their property.

    Please help curtail crime in our area by locking your vehicle doors and garages. Remove your personal property from the interior of your vehicles.

    If any Resident has cameras outside their homes for security purposes, please check them out daily to look for suspicious person(s) and or vehicle(s). Please let us know as soon as possible if you have captured anything that might help in any investigation. Please check the outside of your homes to see if it is well lit and your alarms are working properly.

    Remember…If you see something, say something!!

    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.

    Report all suspicious persons and vehicles to the Constable's office at 281-463-6666. Your cooperation is always appreciated.
