Daytime Burglaries Prompt Response From Police

By: Aundrea Cline-Thomas

  CHARLOTTE – Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are trying to curb a recent spike in home burglaries. The Eastway Division reported 39 break-ins in a span of two weeks, and they say thieves are targeting homes in the middle of the day.

 Police say in most cases, the thieves are entering through the back door of the homes and stealing high-priced items.

 To curb crime, police are encouraging neighbors to get to know and look out for each other.

 “Be a nosey neighbor,” Staff Sgt. Christian Wagner, with CMPD, said. “If you see something suspicious, call 911 about it.”

 Police say they’re not sure whether the burglaries are related. They suggest leaving a light and radio or TV on to make it look like someone is home during the day.

 Currently, the police department is looking for a rust-colored and old model of Oldsmobile with a white top and spider web crack on the windshield.

 If you have any information, you’re asked to call police.
