Police concerned over recent buglaries

Thursday, November 29, 2007

The Brazil City Police Department is requesting informational assistance from the public while investigating a rash of several break-ins within the city within the last two weeks.

"While thefts have a tendency to rise during the holiday season, I don't think it is the case with this rash of break-ins," Police Chief Terry Harrison said about six open burglary cases and one attempted burglary case being investigated by the department.

* John & John Company, 13 S. Meridian St., has been burglarized twice, once on Nov. 14, and then again on Nov. 24,

* Senior Citizens of Clay County Center, 120 S. Franklin St., and Family Hair Quarters, 116 S. Franklin St., were burglarized on Nov. 17,

* An undisclosed privately owned automobile repair shop in northern Brazil was burglarized on Nov. 22, and

* Clark's Auto Repair, 1300 E. National Ave., was burglarized on Tuesday.

Harrison said one hot item that burglars seem to be looking for is tools of any kind.

A way to prevent burglaries is for homeowners and business owners to lock their homes, garages, businesses and vehicles and consider installing security lighting with motion detectors.

"Criminals don't like being interrupted," Harrison said. "If anyone has information about these cases, we would like them to call us."

To provide information about this case, contact the Brazil City Police Department at 446-2211.

This article really sums up the local and county police force we have in Brazil. Good lord, how many 'unsolved' cases are there in this town? It's a joke. Let's clean house and get some 'qualified' men and women on the police force .. how pathetic this is! Asking for the towns help? I have a fulltime job, I can't be out looking for criminals. Oh wait, so do you!
