Released by Longview Police Department

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - With the end of the school year and summer just around the corner, Longview Police want to encourage citizens to be watchful for illegal activity.

This can include anything from a suspicious person walking around the neighborhood checking doors or mailboxes, door to door sales people that do not have a City permit to sell, or cars cruising through neighborhoods at odd times of the day or night.

This week alone, Longview Police investigated at least two residential burglaries and numerous vehicle burglaries. One of these burglaries involved the suspect breaking a window of the home only to find a homeowners startled child. Another was a few blocks away. That burglary occurred when the suspect opened the door of an unlocked vehicle and took several items out of it. The suspect then gained access to the home through an unlocked door, entered the home and garage, and took several tools. The majority of the vehicle burglaries were reportedly committed when thieves opened the doors of unlocked vehicles.

If you plan to take a vacation request a vacation watch through the Police Department. Longview Police will patrol the area more frequently and keep a watch out for any suspicious activity that may occur. The vacation watch costs nothing but could mean the difference between your house being broken into and your precious possessions being stolen.

Police also encourage citizens to use the Operation ID equipment. This program encourages owners to mark their property with some form of identification so that in the event their property is stolen and recovered they will be able to have it returned to them.

Finally, don't leave ANYTHING or the appearance of value in your car. Items left in vehicles provide a shopping center for thieves.

For more information on this or any other program the Police Department offers at Officer Kristie Brian 903-808-3388.
