On June 17th a residential burglary occurred on Brunswick Street SE in Lacey. The resident returned home to find the house had been broken into by someone kicking in the rear door. The only thing taken was a safe from the garage. A video does show a 1980s model Chevrolet Celebrity which appears to be silver or light gray in color at the house. Two subjects went to the rear of the house. Soon a male subject appears to struggle with something heavy back to the vehicle. The vehicle left at 11:18 AM.

Recently there has been an increase in home burglaries in which the suspects are entering through second story windows.  Homes with security systems normally only monitor the first floor openings, and frequently the second floor windows are left open.  At least two of these were made easier by the use of ladders found at the home being burgled.

Be sure to secure second floor windows and also do not leave ladders out where they can be easily used by burglars.

If you have any information on these, or any other crimes, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Sometime over the weekend of April 3rd through the 6th someone stole approximately 8 brass flower vases from Forest Funeral Home on Pacific Avenue SE.  These were discovered missing from the headstones of graves by families while visiting.

This has happened in the past and some of the vases have been recovered at metal recyclers.  These vases obviously have more than monetary value to the families affected.

If you have any information on these, or any other crimes, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
