  • SEASTAR COURT (17-8327)
Occurred on: 10/9/2017 between 5:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
An unknown suspect entered the victim’s home through an open master bedroom window after removing the window screen.  Once inside, the suspect ransacked the master bedroom closet and then went throughout the home and opened drawers and cabinets before fleeing.

Suspect Information:  None seen or heard.
  • KINGSPORT DR (17-8325)
Occurred on: 10/9/2017 between 7:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
An unknown suspect entered the victim’s home through a set of glass doors after shattering a window pain, near the lock.  The suspect then reached in and unlocked the door, which lead from the backyard into the living room.  Once inside, the suspect ransacked a couple of offices, the master bedroom and closet, two additional bedrooms and the kitchen before fleeing with the listed items.
Loss:  Jewelry
Suspect Information:  None seen or heard.
  • SAILCREST (17-8124)
Occurred on: 10/2/2017 at 9:00 p.m.
An unknown suspect used one of the victim’s patio chairs to gain access to the second story master bedroom balcony.  The suspect then used a small ceramic statue, from the backyard, to shatter the glass door. 
While the suspect was attempting to break into the home, one of the residents, who had been in another part of the house, went to investigate several strange noises.  At the same time, another family member called the house and the family member who was home, answered the phone.  That phone call may have deterred the burglar when he/she realized that someone was home.  There was no evidence that the suspect actually entered the home after shattering the glass door.
When the other family members returned home, they walked through the house and called police when they discovered the shattered glass door.
Loss:  None
Suspect Information:  None seen or heard.
**If you see suspicious activity within your neighborhood at a home where you know your neighbors are on vacation, have gone out for the evening, or their home is for sale, please call the Newport Beach Police Department immediately at 949-644-3717**
Please review the Home Security Tips below.  We have also posted a new Home Security Checklist on our website, print it out and conduct a security assessment on your home to see what security measures you can take to “harden the target”.

Home Security Tips
  • Always lock your windows and doors when you go out, even if for only a few minutes.
  • If you return home and find your pedestrian door that leads into your home locked, and you are certain that you left it unlocked, DO NOT GO INSIDE! 
  • Call 9-1-1 ~ Burglars often lock this door to slow down a victim, allowing the burglar extra time to get out of the home before the resident enters.
  • If your home is equipped with an alarm, always activate it even if you’re only going out for a short walk.
    • Consider adding a motion sensor in your master bedroom/bathroom, which will activate the alarm if someone comes in through a glass window or door without opening it.
  • Always keep your front and rear porch lights on from dusk to dawn and use motion detector lighting along the sides of your home or areas with little foot traffic.
  • Use timers on indoor lamps to give the appearance that you are home.
  • Adjust window coverings for optimal privacy while maintaining good visibility outside.
  • If your garage door has a remote shutoff button on the wall-mounted control, located in the garage, consider locking the door nightly. This will prevent your garage door from being opened remotely.
  • If you have a safe, make sure that it is properly bolted to concrete so that it cannot be easily removed.
  • Always close and lock your safe and never leave a key or combination out or in an easy to find location (i.e. office, nightstand, etc).
  • When you leave on vacation, remember to call the Police Department for a “Vacation Check” 949-644-3681 or sign-up online at Also, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your newspaper and mail while you are away.
Report all suspicious activity by calling the Newport Beach Police Department at 949-644-3717.
