Residents Report Car And Home Burglaries Last Week

January 26, 2010

Last week was fairly quite in West University Place, with only the normal types of crime reports — Car and home burglaries, a forgery case.

A resident reported on Jan. 19 that items were missing from inside the victim’s home in the 5900 block of Wakeforest Street. Police couldn’t find evidence of forced entry, but thought the burglar entered through the front door.

From Jan. 17 to 25, residents reported three car burglaries and one attempted burglary.

  • On Jan. 19, a resident in the 2900 block of Bissonnet Street because someone had shattered his vehicle’s window. Luckily, no items were missing.
  • Later that morning, another resident wasn’t so lucky. A car burglar shattered his window in the 3100 block of Bissonnet Street and stole items from the center console.
  • On Jan. 20, a resident’s items were stolen out of his vehicle in the 2800 block of Bissonnet Street.
  • Over the weekend, on Jan. 23, a woman reported to police that someone stole her purse from the car while she was unloading items at RecyclExpress. Police are investigating the crime.

A woman visited the West U. Police Department on Jan. 23 to report she was the victim of check forgery. She said her bank called her because someone tried to cash a temporary personal check from her account, even though the account had been open for a year. The victim didn’t lose any money from her account.

If you’re missing a purse, it could be at the West U. Police Station. Someone found a purse on Jan. 17 in the 3000 block of Buffalo Speedway and took it to police.
