Crime Alert - Residential Burglaries

The Suisun City Police Department has observed a rise in Residential Burglaries during the past 5 weeks. Although the Department has made several arrests, officers have identified the following trends during this recent increase:

1. Two or more suspects are working together.
2. Entry into the victim’s residence has occurred primarily through the rear yard.
3. Most of the burglaries are taking place during the daytime hours.
4. Suspects are taking easy to grab and conceal items such as electronics and

Method of Operation:

The suspects drive neighborhood streets looking for homes that appear unoccupied at the time. Once a potential home is identified, one of the suspects, male or female, walks up to the front door and knocks or rings the doorbell. If a resident answers, the suspect provides an excuse for knocking on the door, such as being lost or looking for a friend, and then walks away. If the door is not answered by someone from inside the residence, the suspect alerts the person or people he/she is working with, at which time entry is made through the rear of the residence. Occasionally entry is made immediately after the suspect has determined nobody is home by forcing entry through the front door. During the commission of the burglary, one of the suspects will remain in the vehicle or standing in the area acting as the “lookout”.

The Suisun City Police Department is asking residents to do the following:

1. Be alert to unknown or suspicious subjects possibly canvassing their street.
2. Be cautious of the unexpected door knock or doorbell ring. Let the person outside know you are home. If you do not recognize the person, do not open the door. Tell them to leave. If you feel the visit is suspicious, call the Police Department immediately.
3. Be alert and if possible obtain a description of the subject, vehicle make, model, color, license number, and last known direction of travel.

Stay on the line with the Dispatcher, who will assist you, while at the same time, dispatch officers to your location
