Burglary Trend UpdateFriday, May 23, 2008 8:55 AM

We are seeing a Burglary pattern emerging and want you to let you know about this.
Since Wednesday 5-21-08 we have had 8 burglaries to garages, mainly in the Kenny and Armatage neighborhoods. These have all been Forced entry. They have occurred at;
50xx Xerxes Av S
59xx Newton Av S
58xx Colfax Av S
3xx Elmwood Pl W
59xx Washburn Av S
59xx Russell Av S
56xx Dupont Av S
52xx York Av S
We need your help to stop this person. If you see any suspicious activity, please call 911.
We would also like to remind residents that we need you to write down the MAKE, MODEL and SERIAL NUMBER of your valuable items. Without these numbers (or an Operation ID number) it is very difficult for us to recover your property or have enough evidence to prove the burglar has your items. We enter the MAKE, MODEL and SERIAL NUMBER of any stolen property into the NCIC ( National Crime Information Center ) computer, so any police officer in the U.S. will know itís stolen from Minneapolis if they find it. We also check local Pawn Shops using the APS (Automated Pawn System) with MAKE, MODEL and SERIAL NUMBER to see if anyone is pawning stolen items. The best way to help yourself and the police department is to keep a current list of these numbers in a safe place. It only takes a few hours to go through your house writing down these numbers off your valuable items, and minutes as you purchase new items.
