Dunwoody Police are urging residents to not leave ladders outside their homes and to report suspicious activity after a string of 10 burglaries occurred in several neighborhoods.
A suspect or suspects used a ladder found outside many of the homes to break into second-story windows in recent weeks, police said in a press release.
Police are conducting investigations but do not have a description of a suspect or suspects or a suspect vehicle.
Dunwoody Police spokesperson Sgt. Robert Parsons said the residential burglaries were scattered throughout many neighborhoods, including Brooke Farm Court, Mount Vernon Road, Wickford Way, Dunover Circle, Meadowlake Drive and Conover Drive. Stolen items included jewelry, clothing and electronics, he said.
Besides securing ladders, police are urging residents to lock all doors and windows, even those on higher floors; report suspicious activity to 911; and activate alarm systems and make sure they cover “non-typical entry points” such as windows on higher floors.
Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact Detective Robert Ehlbeck at 678-382-6925 or email at Robert.Ehlbeck@dunwoodyga.gov.
