On Thursday, February 11th 2016, the Yeadon Police Department has responded to a rash of vehicle beak-ins that occurred along the 700, 800 and 900 blocks of Bullock Avenue. Some of the targeted vehicles were parked in the rear driveway, while others were parked on the street. These incidents occurred during the early morning hours.
The suspect (s) used some type of tool to “pop out” the passenger side window of each vehicle. In most cases the suspect would then reach inside the vehicle and remove property from the vehicle. Most residents parked their vehicles, late Wednesday night and discovered the break-ins on Thursday morning.
These thefts are referred to as "smash and grabs". Criminals will often target vehicles that are parked in dark and isolated areas. Valuables left in plain view in the vehicle also may generate motivation for criminals to quickly break a window and grab them. None of the residents neither heard nor saw anything suspicious prior to the thefts.
The police department has increased patrols in the area. We are asking all residents if possible, to park your vehicle in a well-lit area – in a garage if possible. Use Motion Senser Lights in rear of property.
Most important – immediately call “911” if you see or hear anything suspicious, especially during the early morning hours.
No alerts at this time.
