Fridays seem to be bad days for Minneapolis residents when it comes to burglaries. Several apartment buildings, rental units and garages in the Kingfield, East Harriet, Linden Hills, Fulton, Lynhurst and Tangletown neighborhoods have been burglarized according the the Star Tribune.
When residents of these communities go to work, so do the crooks. They enter unlocked doors and in some cases force open garage service doors and apartment doors. Chelsea Adams, a crime prevention specialist for the Minneapolis Police Department recently said, â€œWe in the fifth precinct are investigating and we take this seriously.â€
She reminds everyone to check their doors to be sure they close tightly and have good locks on them. Even if you are out in the yard or just going to pick up mail, lock your doors!
Always take precautions and be aware of what is going on around you. If you see any suspicous people hanging around the area, call police immediately. So far no on has been arrested for these burglaries.
