There is a recent increase in burglaries overnight, either very late or in the early morning hours, according to Escondido police Lieutenant Neal Griffin.

The intruder is entering homes through a ground-floor door or window which is found unlocked, police said.

“The burglaries may occur even when the residents are home,” Lt. Griffin warned.

Besides locking all doors and windows, “residents should also consider the installation of motion detectors for perimeter lights or keeping one exterior light on overnight,” police advise.

Citizens are asked to report any suspicious activity noticed in the neighborhood, especially late at night.

The good old EPD now tells the residents of the city how to avoid burglary; lock your doors and close your windows. Who'd a thunk that preventing intrusion and break-in was so simple? Oh, and if you see something suspicious, call the cops. What new and amazing revelations! Betcha nobody breaks into that palatial new EPD headquarters building. Too fancy for the usual Escondido street criminal and too fancy for that city. Besides, who'd break into a building full of cops?

Maybe the EPD could learn some basics about police work instead of playing wannabe cops, b/c they botched the Crowe murder as bad as you can..........

On that one, they had help from Oceanside. EPD wanted some help with the case, and oh boy, did they get help from an OPD gang detective. A classic case of the blind leading the blind.

Escondido police repeated their warning on July 25, 2013. Lieutenant Neal Griffin stated that after 2 a.m. on July 24, a man reached through an open window and “touched a woman’s body while she was asleep in bed with two young children.” This newest scare happened on Magnolia Place, and “is being treated as a part of this ongoing series,” the lieutenant reported. “The point of entry has consistently been an unsecured door or ground level window,” he stated. He advised that citizens should consider installing motion detectors connected to outside lights, or keeping an outside light on all night.
