The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office – District 6, Lt. David Dottei wanted everyone to be aware that over the last three months there has been a 65% increase in UNLOCKED vehicles (77%) vs. Forced Entry (23%) – Burglary of Motor Vehicle, in driveways and parking lots in The Woodlands.
Also, of note the Lieutenant has advised that out of these vehicles (that are burglarized) that 4 to 5 times a week guns are being taken from these vehicles. Please, if you have a gun DO NOT STORE IT IN YOUR VEHICLE. This is of great concern to our deputies and is a safety hazard.
In all cases, the burglar is seeing something they want out of a vehicle.
LOCK YOUR CAR – PUT IT IN YOUR GARAGE – TAKE ITEMS OUT OF YOUR CAR.
Please share this with your neighbors and Watch Members.
