Davis police are reminding residents to lock doors and windows, citing a string of burglaries in the south Davis area over the weekend.
The burglaries or attempted break-ins occurred Sunday, taking place overnight and in the early-morning hours when the victims were home. Two burglaries were successful.
One was interrupted, and the other was an attempted break-in, according to a Police Department news release.
Intruders entered through unlocked sliding doors and bedroom windows. Stolen items included laptop computers, jewelry, cash, cellphones, electronics and credit cards.
The interrupted burglary occurred about 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Police said the victim briefly saw an intruder leaving through an open window. No information on the intruder was available.
Police encourage residents to make sure all windows, doors, garages and side gates are closed and locked when not in use. They advise people to keep their doors locked when they are home and especially at night when they sleep. Burglars have consistently targeted unlocked entry points, police said.
Residents also are urged to report suspicious activity, such as people walking or driving up and down the street, checking for unlocked doors, or looking in windows, backyards or vehicles.
Vehicles cruising a neighborhood at very slow speeds, or people sitting in a vehicle for an extended period can be signs of suspicious activity, police say.
Anyone who sees such activity is urged to call 911 from home phones or (530) 758-3600 from a cellphone.
Police also recommend that residents inscribe or engrave their driver's license numbers on valuables and keep a record of serial numbers on all personal electronics, computers, cameras and gaming systems to aid in recovering stolen goods.
