Burglars targeting homes being fumigated in Fresno
FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26 NEWS) —
The Fresno Police Department is warning people about an increase in residential burglaries while homes are being fumigated.
It says there have been 12 reported cases in the Central District in the last 12 months.
Here are a few ways Fresno P.D. says you can prevent burglaries in the future:
• Remove all valuables from your residence prior to fumigating.
• Vet the fumigation companies contracted for fumigation to ensure that they are licensed.
• Communicate with your established Neighborhood Watch Group in the area, or consider creating one if one is not established.
• Consider contracting with a security company to patrol your residence while the residence is being fumigated.
• If you have surveillance cameras, ensure that they are working and recording while the fumigation is being completed.
