Police Warn, 30 Guns Stolen from Homes in the Last 30 Days

New Castle County Police are warning the public of a rash of gun burglaries that have occurred in various communities since the end of September. A total of eight homes have been broken where guns, along with other valuables, have been stolen.

Investigators would like to share some preventative suggestions for gun owners:

Hiding a gun in a closet, night stand or under your bed are NOT safe locations to store weapons.
Guns should always be stored unloaded and locked in a secure location.
Gun safes (without glass windows) are recommended.
If possible, secure the safe to the wall or floor.
Record all serial numbers of your weapons and keep the records in a safe place.
If you are a recreational target shooter, consider storing the gun at the club.

For home security remember to:

Always lock your doors and windows especially when you are not at home or when you go to bed.
Leave lights on when you go out.
Always remember to keep you garage doors locked and closed.
If you have a garage door opener in your vehicle, ensure your car is locked as well.
Consider installing deadbolts.
Consider installing a residential alarm (make sure you know how to properly operate the system).
Have adequate exterior lighting.
Make sure shrubbery is properly trimmed to prevent concealment of an intruder.
Never leave keys under doormats, flowerpots, mailboxes or other secret hiding places.
Do not keep valuables in plain view from the outside.
Be a good neighbor and call 911 if you witness suspicious activity –trust your instinct

If a candidate has confirmed, but there opponent has not, we will still provide them a time slot to address the audience.
