The Kent Police Department arrested a suspect responsible for at least 8 burglaries of downtown businesses. Over the past few months, there have been several smash and grab type of burglaries (suspect smashes a glass window or door to gain access to the business). The suspect, who lives within walking distance of the downtown area, was arrested last week.
As a reminder, to prevent these types of crimes, you can secure your business by purchasing security film that is installed in windows and on glass doors. Security film can be purchased at most window stores. Also, consider removing all large rocks or objects that can be used to throw through a window. As always, continue to keep your eyes and ears open for suspicious activity and do not hesitate to call 911. Thank you for being partners in crime prevention!
