Preciado offered the follow tips to residents to avoid burglaries.
- Please lock all doors and windows when leaving your residence.
- Invest in a home security alarm system, dog or even increased lighting around your home.
- Don't give thieves an easy target and let them take what you have worked so hard to obtain. If you have questions or are interested in starting a neighborhood watch group, please feel free to contact me...
