On June 12th in the evening a vehicle in Linkwood was broken into - the driver’s side lock was punched in and the window was bashed in. The resident’s credit card (from a wallet hidden in the vehicle) was immediately used for fuel at Sunny’s gas station on Stella Link. HPD believes the criminals were trying to steal the truck.
Many neighborhoods are getting hit by these wandering criminals who walk up and down streets, in the middle of the night checking if vehicles are open and looking into them to see if there is anything of value inside.
PLEASE LOCK YOUR VEHICLES and PLEASE DO NOT KEEP ANYTHING OF VALUE in your vehicle. HPD and SEAL Security have both said numerous times that criminals have been know to break into vehicles only to find an empty bag or a box.
CLOSE & LOCK your garages and do not keep key fobs (electronic devices like those embedded in keys/key chains for unlocking cars, garages, etc.) in your vehicles even when they are garaged.
LOCK YOUR GATES AND FENCES. If you don’t have locks please get them.
PLEASE CONSIDER MOTION CAMERAS for your property. On a recent RING video a wondering criminal was walking up and down the block checking vehicles but as soon as the motion light came on - he turned around and left.
In summertime, neighborhoods usually have a bump in crime. We have not yet experienced an increase in crime. In fact, our crime rate in Woodside has been below our usual average. We attribute that to SEAL Security, HPD, our Citizens On Patrol and observant residents.
As many of you are going on vacation - please remember to:
