Independence Police share tips following rash of burglaries

Posted:
INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -

The Independence Police Department is sharing tips with residents following a rash of car and garage burglaries.

Police say car burglaries are very hard to solve because the thieves usually leave very little physical evidence behind.  They also say that these crimes usually happen in business parking lots where the thieves are less likely to be seen.

Here are a few tips to keep you and your belongings safe from police:

- Always close your windows and lock your doors.
- Park in well lit areas close to buildings.
- Remove valuables from your vehicle.
- Report suspicious people roaming around parking lots and looking into vehicles.
- Record the make, model number and serial number of all electronic equipment.  This aids identification if they are found or pawned.
