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.

There is an ongoing problem of thefts of items while people are using gyms throughout the area.  Recently we’re seeing an increase in this problem.  When you go to the gym remember to leave valuables at home, and while you’re at the gym make sure to secure any items you did bring with you.  Do not leave items unattended in bags or in unlocked lockers.

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.

During the past few weeks there has been an increase in bicycle thefts throughout the county.  The common thing in the majority of these thefts is the bicycle was left in an insecure location making it easy to take.

Make sure you secure your bicycles in a safe location, and please record the serial number for your bicycle.  You should also register your bicycles through your local police department.

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.

A theft of cash occurred on February 2, at about 3:30 pm at the Safeway fuel station located near the intersection of Martin Way and Kasey Keller Drive NE. The victim arrived at the gas pumps to fill his cans of gas alongside his pickup. While doing so, an unknown suspect approaches the victim’s truck, enters the passenger side door and steals an envelope full of money. In the second picture, we have reason to believe that a male near-by in a minivan is also involved in this theft.
