HPD getting word out about high number of break-ins

Published 12:10pm Monday, November 14, 2011

From Sept. 30 to Oct. 30, the Huntsville Police Department reported 241 home break-ins.

If you see someone backing into a driveway, popping a trunk, and/or wearing a backpack, please call (256)722-7100 and give address and as much description about the vehicle(s) and person(s) as possible.

Police are advising to not call 911, as this may delays information to responders, and gives criminals time to be out in just a few minutes.

Criminals are approaching front doors, ringing door bells or knocking, and if no answer, they are going to the back of house and kicking in a door. Items that are being stolen are: flat screen TV’s, laptop computers and  game Stations.

Again, If you see someone backing into a driveway, and popping a trunk, and/or wearing a backpack, please call (256)722-7100 and give address and as much description about the vehicle(s) and person(s) as possible.
