According to The Capital Times, police inform residents to keep their homes secure upon moving. Although it is easier to leave doors and windows unlocked during a hectic move in/move out day, it also makes it easier for thieves to take advantage of you and steal your possessions.
On Saturday morning, Madison police answered a call on Fahrenbrook Court after a man stole a laptop computer and cell phone charger from a 20-year-old female resident. The victim believes the suspect was a guest of a roommate. “A front window was open and had been left unlocked,” police spokesman Joel DeSpain said in a news release.
The victim had awakened about 8 am and noticed there was a man in her home, but didn’t think much about it until she realized her computer and charger were gone. “With many central city residents changing abodes, the police department once again advises everyone to keep doors and windows secured, and not to leave small electronics out in plain view,” DeSpain cautions.
