Increase in housebreaks

Thirty home break-ins have been reported in the past four months, most of them in the Callahan and Prescott school districts and near West Border Road, police said in a press release. Houses that appear unoccupied or aren’t easily visible from the road are being targeted, the release said, and residents were advised to call police immediately if someone comes to their door, asks for someone they don’t know, asks an unusual question, or makes them feel in any way uncomfortable. Police also recommend locking all doors and windows and using interior and exterior lighting to increase visibility.
