Increase in vehicle burglaries reported in Del Mar and other communities

Over the past few months, the Encinitas Sheriff’s Station has seen an increase in vehicle burglaries in its cities and throughout the County of San Diego.

The San Diego Sheriff’s Department uses information-led policing to identify patterns, trends, known suspects and offenders in order to predict, prevent, investigate, and coordinate a response to these types of crime. However, the best kind of prevention is an informed citizen.

Vehicle burglaries are often a crime of opportunity or selective targeting. Commonalities associated with vehicle thefts include unlocked vehicle doors, open windows and valuables left in plain sight.

The Encinitas Sheriff’s Station reminds everyone to always lock your car doors, keep your windows rolled up and remove your valuables from your car when left unattended.

Some of the most common items stolen from vehicles are: GPS devices, laptop computers, iPods, iPads, MP3 players, purses, wallets, cameras, and cell phones. A good rule of thumb to remember: “If it has value, it will be taken during a burglary.”

If you see something suspicious please report it to law enforcement. Your tips and leads are valuable and often times lead to the arrest of the suspect.
