Police says thieves now targeting tented houses in Carmel Valley and other areas

By Karen Billing

Tracey Williams, community relations officer for the San Diego Police Department’s Northwestern Division, warned locals to keep an eye out in their neighborhood for homes that are tented for insect treatment as the homes are now being targeted by thieves.

Williams, who gave the warning at the Torrey Hills Community Planning Board’s Feb. 18 meeting, said that thieves now know that windows are opened at a certain part in the tenting process and that is how the homes are being burglarized.

Williams said the police want to hear about any suspicious activity seen around tented homes.

“Be a good witness,” Williams said, noting license plate numbers are like “gold” to them. For 24-hour non-emergencies, dial (619) 531-2000 or (858) 484-3154.
