East side burglaries continuing | Crime
Evansville Police continue to get reports of residential burglaries on the east side despite several arrests during their on-going investigations.
Police are asking the public to help watch their own neighborhoods and to call 911 to report any suspicious activity. There have been several reports from homeowners about people knocking on their doors in the evening and offering home improvement services. The homeowners thought it was suspicious because there were no work trucks and the person did not have any tools or items that identified them as a worker for any company.
Police believe these people might be targeting the home and will break in of nobody answers. Police are asking anyone who gets one of these visits to remember as much info as possible about the person or type of vehicle.
Police warn against agreeing to any unsolicited work in or around your home. They also suggest you document the serial numbers for all of your property. Any items that do not have serial numbers, like jewelry, should be photographed. Doing those things can help during the investigation and will help you when you file an insurance claim.
