From Sara Wood of the Kent Police Department:
Of important note…
Kent Police arrested three individuals associated with metal theft from commercial properties. Stolen property was also recovered!
We continue to see smash/grab burglaries to businesses. Suspects are breaking glass windows and doors! While police do their job and review video to track down suspects, make sure you do your job!
1) Secure your business.
2) Review your cash handling practices.
3) If you have a surveillance system please ensure it is working.
4) Do a rock survey of your property and remove all objects that can be used to throw through a window to gain access.
5) Last, but certainly not least, keep your eyes and ears open for suspicious people, vehicles and activity. Remember, if it feels “funny” or “weird”, it probably is. This is usually the time to call 9-1-1 to report all that you can about the situation.
