Rise in garage break-ins in Crown Point

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - People in Crown Point are on edge Saturday after a series of garage break-ins in their neighborhood.

Residents say there have been 6 burglaries in 6 weeks and they're asking for additional police patrols in the area.

CBS NEWS 8's Kelly Hessedal has more in this video story.

Statement from Lt. Kevin Mayer of San Diego PD:

"Preventing car break-ins and catching criminals who commit these crimes requires a partnership between law enforcement and our communities. We ask the public to report suspicious activity and to not leave items of value in their vehicles that someone would want to steal. Additional preventative tips are listed on our website at http://www.sandiego.gov/police/pdf/crimeprevention/VehicleSecurity.pdf. The San Diego Police Department does conduct overt and covert operations to prevent and catch car burglars in addition to numerous other crimes."
