Crime Watch Report May / June 2017

Hello Town Creek Residents! I hope everyone has had an opportunity to enjoy this great north Texas summer so far. It has been several years since the grass was as thick and green well into late summer and everything looks fantastic!

The general theme for this report that covers the last two months is “lock those doors”. We have had more burglaries of auto and home than usual, but many of them can be directly attributed to unlocked doors. There are people that walk through the neighborhood at night looking for easy opportunities, and they found plenty during the recent months. Please try to keep all of your doors and windows locked, yard gates locked, garage doors closed, and please park your cars in the garage overnight if possible.

As we do not have a Crier for the June/July period, the information below includes data from both May and June.
