West Tawakoni Police Department Notice to Citizens

In recent days we have been experiencing a rash of Vehicle Burglaries. These seem to have started over the weekend of February 7 and February 8 and appear to be on-going. Vehicles in various parts of town have been hit, with perpetrators going through vehicles, scattering contents and taking small items. The items taken have been sunglasses, music cds, one flash drive and other small items.

In most every case, the vehicles have been unlocked and sitting on the owners premises. This is an open invitation to a thief as there is no effort involved in gaining entry.

Please do your best to always ensure that your vehicles are locked when parked, even on your own property. Remember, should you have to contact your insurance carrier, the first question your insurance agent is going to ask is “was the vehicle locked”?

Don’t be a victim, lock and secure your vehicles and your home.

Thank you,
West Tawakoni Police Department
