It's Hot - But Lock your Windows!

So the warmer weather finally arrived and regrettably, some less than savoury characters are trying to make the best of it.

Over the last week there have been a few complaints of screens having been removed or cut from ground floor windows in the Langley city Area. Luckily for those residents, entry was never gained to the residences. Unfortunately, a Murrayville resident wasn’t quite so lucky.

On August 4th, Police attended the Murrayville house and met with the owner who advised the suspects gained entry through the home office window. A laptop, wallet and cash was taken from the residence. Entry was gained overnight while the owners slept and nothing was heard likely due to fans and air conditioning units.

Corporal Holly LARGY, spokesperson for Langley RCMP, Even though it is unbearably hot during the night, residents are cautioned to consider home security. If you are going to leave a window open on the ground level of your home, you should employ some kind of security brace and only leave the window open a couple inches.

Lastly, make sure you ‘make the rounds’ before you go to bed each night. Have you taken valuables and garage door openers out of your car? Is your car parked in the driveway / garage and is it locked? Are the doors to the house locked? Are windows braced or closed and locked on the main level? Consider making yourself a security checklist to keep your property and family safe.
