Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are asking for you help in a series of burglaries.
We often think that the area we live in is safe. “It’s gated.” “It’s on a golf course.” “It’s on a lake.” “Security drives by every two hours.”
Sadly, it doesn’t matter where you live, or if it’s gated, or on a golf course, or what side of town, or what city or state you live in, crime is on the rise, especially in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas. Best Places compared Las Vegas to Los Angeles in violent crime, and property crime, and it’s actually a bit alarming.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is warning residents of a series of burglaries that have targeted properties near golf courses in Summerlin, and asking for your help.
According to a recent news release, the burglaries occurred on 11 occasions since October 2022.
Police say that in each event, the suspects have gained access to the targeted residences through a desert area, golf courses or walking paths.
According to LVMPD, detectives are in the process of canvasing the areas where burlaries have taken place to locate any videos, photos or information which can lead to the identification of the possible suspects.
Additional patrols have been established within the Summerlin Area Command and Major Case Protocol has been enacted, the department said in the release.
Anyone with any information about these incidents is urged to contact Summerlin Area Command Patrol Detectives by phone at 702-828-9455 or by email: SACinvestigations@lvmpd.com. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers: 702-385-5555, or: www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
Precautions you can take if you are not already: Lock your doors and windows, bar your sliders, put a couple cameras inside and outside your home. Cameras are very affordable now, and well worth the investment. An alarm system, if you can do it.
If your neighborhood has a neighborhood watch, be a part of it, or establish one.
Also – get to know your neighbors, so they can keep an eye on your home, and you can keep an eye on theirs. And maybe, eventually – do a potluck!
