The San Angelo Police Department would like to remind residents to keep their doors locked and their valuables secured.  Many times the crimes of theft and burglary are crimes of opportunity.  By simply locking the doors and windows at your residence or your vehicle can drastically reduce the chance of you becoming a victim of these crimes.

 

Recently there was a note passed out by a resident in the Santa Rita area to the surrounding neighborhoods and on Facebook.  The note alerted residents to a recent incident involving a slim white male with a mustache and goatee driving in a white Chevrolet pickup with a grille guard.  The male subject knocked on the front door of a residence in the 2400 block of W Avenue K.  When there was no response the male subject drove around to the alley and tried entered the yard through the back gate.  The male was then confronted by the resident of the house and he stated he was looking for work before leaving prior to Police arrival.  The male never made it into the back yard.

 

It is important to report this type of suspicious behavior.  If you see someone who is acting suspicious in your neighborhood, don?t hesitate to contact the Police Department and report the suspicious behavior.  This information can potentially lead to suspects being identified and cases being solved.
