DAVIS (CBS13) — Davis police reported Wednesday that there has been a rise in vehicle burglaries in the last month.
Over the past 30 days, police said they have taken 38 vehicle burglary reports. In most cases, officers said the suspect or suspects broke a car window to enter the vehicle.
Most of the reported burglaries happened in the daylight hours, police said.
Officer said many burglaries can be prevented by removing the opportunity to steal valuables from your car. Commonly stolen items include laptops, purses, wallets, gym bags, camera, tools, and all types of currency.
