Chief of Police Dino Sgambellone commented as follows on the burglaries:
“The Los Alamos Police Department has increased patrols. We will be placing crime alert cards on any residence, vehicle, or business that is unsecured to warn and remind citizens to secure their property and remove valuables from sight and access.
“Also, any suspicious vehicle or group will be stopped and investigated by our officers. Especially, late at night. We want to ask parents of teenagers to monitor and be aware of your children’s where-a-bouts in the evening. Please have a discussion with them that there is a heightened alert among property owners, and they should not be trespassing or loitering in areas that would cause a reasonable person to be concerned.
“The Los Alamos Police Department is aggressively patrolling in the evenings. Last night, a felon was apprehended by patrol officers in possession of a firearm and in possession of illicit drugs.”
“Two separate groups of teenagers were also located by officers last night. Individuals in one group were in possession of alcohol and the other group had individuals in possession of marijuana.
“It is imperative that our community stays safe during this Public Health Emergency, and we can do so by partnering together.”
