“Residents are encouraged to report suspicious activity at the time it is observed. Residents are also encouraged to take preventative measures to protect their homes from potential burglars. Some preventative tips include making your residence appear occupied, leaving lights on at night only, park a vehicle in your driveway and remove packages and mail from outside your home,” DiCarlo said.
