A message from Sheriff Agnew about recent burglaries
There have been multiple burglaries in our area recently and as your Central VA area home security specialists, we want to keep our current and future customers informed. At Structured Cable of VA and Security Specialists, Inc. we want to help Central VA homeowners protect themselves and their properties. That's why we offer top-of-the-line home security systems. The following is a message from Goochland County Sheriff, James Agnew about the recent break-ins in our area. Please read this important message.
From the Goochland Sheriff's Office:
Twice this week, the latest this afternoon, we have been visited by burglars who are kicking in rear doors and stealing jewelry. Details of today’s break-ins are incomplete as investigators are just arriving at the scene. However at this point, the target area seems to be eastern Goochland County (Manakin).
We have had several meetings with neighboring jurisdictions regarding these burglaries. Hanover, Henrico, Powhatan, New Kent, Chesterfield, Colonial Heights, and Louisa have all been plagued by these residential daytime burglaries. In virtually every one, the back door has been kicked in and the thieves are targeting jewelry and cash.
We have arrested two individuals from Charlottesville for two of our incidents in the western and central parts of Goochland, but our more recent crimes have been in the eastern end and we do not believe that these are related to the others where we have made arrests.
We urge all of you to protect your homes by turning on alarm systems, alerting neighbors if you are to be away for an extended period, locking doors and windows, and by paying attention to people you see in your neighborhoods.
Please call 911 if you see suspicious activity. If possible, get descriptive information e.g., vehicle color, make model, License #, direction of travel, number of occupants, clothing, race, sex, age, etc.
All local police jurisdictions are working on this problem, but we need your help. You ARE NOT BOTHERING us if you call.
