(DUBLIN, Ohio) – The Dublin Division of Police have filed six burglary reports at residences in the City since May 2, 2012. Five of these burglaries have occurred at apartments/condos. Four of the six reports were daytime burglaries. The other two burglary reports had extended time ranges, but it is likely that these occurred during daytime hours.
Five of the six reports showed that no visible force was used to enter the dwelling. The call to Craigston Court (non-apartment or condo) involved a smashed rear first floor window. In at least two of the five calls, the rear sliding glass door was found open or unsecured even though the victims were confident that these doors were locked and secured when they left. The officers have mentioned the possibility of “lock bumping” as a method of gaining access.
Items such as a hot water heater, air conditioner, copper pipe, cash, checkbook, laptop computer, jewelry, electronics, laundry baskets, TV, iPod, and duffel bag have been the target.
Residents and complex employees are encouraged to keep an extra eye and ear out for suspicious and/or unusual activity. Residents are reminded to keep their doors and windows closed and locked when they leave. If you witness a crime or something suspicious, please immediately contact the Dublin Police at 614.889.1112.
