Police: Keep your eyes open Sweet Home Police Chief Bob Burford is asking members the public to keep an eye out for suspicious activities in their neighborhoods following a rash of burglaries and attempted burglar- ies last week. In a burglary near 10th and Elm, a pair of laptops and jewelry were stolen Tuesday, while the day before, in an apparently con- nected incident on Oak Terrace, a male subject knocked on the front door and said he was looking for his cat. Other calls included a report of a lost generator, a purse stolen from a restaurant, 15 firearms sto- len from 28th Avenue and a would- be thief reaching into a garage, at- tempting to steal a chainsaw. Saturday night brought two reports of suspicious males pos- sibly casing houses around Nan- dina and Evergreen and possibly attempting to break into a church on Oak Terrace. Anyone who sees anything unusual around their neighbor- hoods, unknown people or people going around the back of a house should call the police, Burford said. The burglars likely have a vehicle. "I would encourage home- owners to take a security check around the exterior of their house," said Det. Cyndi Pichardo. The Police Department will be happy to take a look and offer suggestions, Burford said. Pichardo said she also would be interested in hearing about ran- dom strangers looking for missing pets. "You know your neighbors," Burford said. Residents know who is usually in their neighborhoods. "You're really our eyes and ears." If the public and police can work together, they can identify and stop the burglars, he said.
