FISHERS, Ind. (March 27, 2015)-- Fishers police sent out a neighborhood crime alert following three burglaries over the past three weeks. All of the crimes happened in different areas around the city.
The first happened on March 9 at the Watermark on Cumberland Apartments followed by another burglary on March 21 inside the River Highlands neighborhood. Just this week on March 26, there was another home break-in inside The Bristols neighborhood.
Police say in all of the cases the burglars made forced entry through the front or back door.
"These people are moving through these neighborhoods and people are seeing them. They're not really recognizing that they're suspects but they probably recognize they're out of place or suspicious," said Sgt. Tom Weger.
Sgt. Weger says the thieves are looking for jewelry because its easy to conceal and they can go on to pawn it for cash.
"These suspects are targeting jewelry and so we encourage residents to lock their jewelry up. I would encourage them to make that investment in a small safe and place their jewelry in a safe," said Sgt. Weger.
Neighbors in the area say its important to look out for one another no matter the time of day.
"We just kind of keep an eye out for cars that do not look familiar or people walking around the street. We do have an alarm system so we make sure we turn it on every night before we go to bed and everyday before we leave." said Mark Hancock.
Police encourage neighbors to give them a call if they notice suspicious vehicles in the area. If your neighborhood isn't apart of a Fishers Neighborhood Crime Watch program contact Sgt. Tom Weger at 317-595-3308 for more information.
