We get calls regarding burglaries of motor vehicle and thefts from vehicles. In most reports doors were left unlocked and unfortunately personal property was stolen.
This year, Spring Shadows has been plagued with burglary of motor vehicles. 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!!
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.
Sincerely, Sgt. Gonzales
