CRIME ALERT – Residential Burglary in RD 46

 

  • 4600 BLOCK OF TREMONT LN (17-2145)
Occurred between: 3/16/2017 at 4:40 p.m. and 3/18/2017 at 12:00 p.m.
 
The victim discovered the several hundred dollars was missing from a dresser drawer in his master bedroom, but thought that he had miss placed it.  Several days later, his cleaning lady discovered an item of jewelry on the floor in the master bedroom as she was vacuuming.  That prompted the victim to check on the jewelry and the location where he had stored a set of silverware.  After checking, he discovered both the jewelry and silverware missing.
 
After officers arrived at the location, both the victim and officers inspected the home for signs of force.  There was no damage found and so it appears that an unknown suspect entered the home through an unlocked door, removed the victim’s property listed below and fled.
 
Loss:  Costume jewelry, wedding band, US Currency and silverware.
 
Suspect Information:  None seen or heard.
 
**If you see suspicious activity within your neighborhood at a home where you know your neighbors are on vacation, have gone out for the evening, or their home is for sale, please call the Newport Beach Police Department immediately at 949-644-3717**
 
Please review the Home Security Tips below.  Also, we have posted a new Home Security Checklist on our website, print it out and conduct a security assessment on your home to see what security measures you can take to “harden the target”.

HOME SECURITY CHECKLIST
 
Home Security Tips
  • Always lock your windows and doors when you go out, even if for only a few minutes.
  • If you return home and find your pedestrian door that leads into your home locked, and you are certain that you left it unlocked, DO NOT GO INSIDE! 
  • Call 9-1-1 ~ Burglars often lock this door to slow down a victim, allowing the burglar extra time to get out of the home before the resident enters.
  • If your home is equipped with an alarm, always activate it even if you’re only going out for a short walk.
    • Consider adding a motion sensor in your master bedroom/bathroom, which will activate the alarm if someone comes in through a glass window or door without opening it.
  • Always keep your front and rear porch lights on from dusk to dawn and use motion detector lighting along the sides of your home or areas with little foot traffic.
  • Use timers on indoor lamps to give the appearance that you are home.
  • Adjust window coverings for optimal privacy while maintaining good visibility outside.
  • If your garage door has a remote shutoff button on the wall-mounted control, located in the garage, consider locking the door nightly. This will prevent your garage door from being opened remotely.
  • If you have a safe, make sure that it is properly bolted to concrete so that it cannot be easily removed.
  • Always close and lock your safe and never leave a key or combination out or in an easy to find location (i.e. office, nightstand, etc).
  • When you leave on vacation, remember to call the Police Department for a “Vacation Check” 949-644-3681 or sign-up online at www.nbpd.org. Also, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your newspaper and mail while you are away.
Report all suspicious activity by calling the Newport Beach Police Department at 949-644-3717.
