    *_Crime Trends_*

    Now that the holidays are over, we saw a trend of adults directing
    youths (14-19 years old) to commit crimes.

    Adults are being reported ‘chauffeuring’ juveniles and waiting with
    a vehicle running outside target homes for burglaries; the youths
    are sent inside to commit the crime. *Report suspicious activity to
    242-COPS (2677) from a safe place.*

    An uptick of doggie doors being used as points of entry for
    residential burglaries again. *Secure your doggie doors!*

    Seeing more cases now of going to the back of the home and breaking
    in through a rear door. *Watch for strangers climbing neighbors’
    fences or poking around yards to get to the back of homes.  Call
    242-COPS or 911.*

    *_Ladders:_*Reports of *10-50 aluminum ladders* *a day* being stolen
    by a person or team.  These are being taken to recycle centers and
    exchanged for quick money.

    *Secure your property – Put away your ladders when done with your
    project – Lock up items in sheds – Keep those garage doors closed!*
