Mallow Drive burglary: (written by Larry from Phase 2)
Some are aware that on Friday, 2/27, Jim and Marilyn Knowles house was burglarized between the hours of 12:30 and 2:00 pm. Entry was made through the lanai into the master bedroom. The door was evidently not locked, because no sign of forced entry was evident, but it was standing open when the Knowles returned. The alarm (nonmonitored) was set and it activated but was not heard by anyone in the neighborhood. Further investigation showed that the external siren located in the soffit had corroded and was not operable. Items of jewelry were taken.
A house around the corner on Killarney had three window screens removed and pry marks showing an attempt to gain entry, but entry was not successful.
Probably a good idea to test your alarm system for proper operation.
Joe Hodges, from Phase 2, provided the information below as a follow up to the Mallow Drive burglary.
In addition a residence on Kinnard Cir was burglarized a couple of weeks ago and entry was made from the pool area by breaking out the glass in a door and jewelry and coins were stolen. In that case the alarm was set also but since the offender stepped through without opening the door the alarm did not activate and the motion sensor was in another room and never activated.
It is a good idea to test your alarm system periodically even if it is monitored. Most companies allow once a month testing without charge, check with your system monitor. If you replace sirens I suggest they be located inside the attic down near the soffit. Get a large horn and it will be heard just as well without exposure to the elements and visible for tampering.
Several people have told me that they also saw a W/M in dark clothing wearing a black ski cap on the date of the burglary........NO ONE called in a suspicious person to the VCSO. Their non-emergency number is 386-248-1777. Put it in your cell phone or write it down by your home phone. Just tell the dispatcher that there have been several burglaries in your neighborhood and see someone or something that looks either out of place or unusual. Don't forget the description, white/black, tall/short, clothing, direction of travel, make and model of car, and the crown piece of information if you can get it....a tag number!
Remember we are the eyes and ears. We are not patrol officers and no one is expected to intervene unless necessary and that usually comes down to you be the victim and action is unavoidable.
Keep those doors locked and use your alarm. Get to know who your neighbors are, what kind of car they drive, how often they are home so that you will notice something wrong.
Finally, and I have said this a thousand times, the police would rather come out for a hundred unfounded calls than miss the one good one!
